Business & Entrepreneurship Program Curriculum

OVERVIEW
In 2019, Warrior-Scholar Project launched an expanded version of its classic one-week, humanities course by adding a second week of instruction which focused on a business curriculum at the University of Southern California. During this two-week course, the first week of instruction focused on the established humanities curriculum. The second week shifted to a business curriculum, focusing on topics such as reading & writing for business, business skills workshops, business pitch group work, leadership & team building activities, discussions & panels with business experts, and a pitch showcase capstone. Through these activities, participants developed skills required to succeed in a business-related college degree program.
