Exceptional summer school in Business Management at Royal Hospital School
The Business Leadership programme focuses on the challenges facing enterprises today, and the impact that will have on the future. Participants will explore areas such as common business theories, ethics of trading and innovative marketing strategies.
The aim of the Future Insights Business Leadership programme is to introduce participants to key business principles, whilst simultaneously helping students understand what career opportunities could be available to them in the future, and how companies can capitalise on new technologies to help their own development.
The key question this programme asks is ‘how do ambitious young people prepare for careers that don’t exist yet?’.
How would you describe a social media manager, VR developer or big data analyst to someone 10 years ago?
The Future Insights programme focuses on forward-thinking content that helps students develop well-rounded skills, whilst looking at potential careers available to them in 10 years time and beyond.
The course also puts huge emphasis on practical learning. Participants will be exposed to emerging technologies, and will gain hands-on experience learning how they work, including:
Building robotic vehicles
Exploring virtual reality
Racing sustainable vehicles
