Rutgers University Student Executive (RUSE) program

April 12, 2018

LEAP Academy 11th graders Taylor Carr (Junior Class Student Council Vice President) and DaJuan Copes (LEAP Lions basketball player) participated in the Rutgers University Student Executive (RUSE) program where they were introduced to the field of Business through learning from Rutgers Business School faculty, along with business owners and community leaders who gave lessons on entrepreneurship, time management and choosing a good business partner. Students were also assigned undergraduate mentors who worked with program participants on completing and marketing their business plans. The program ended with a case competition where students worked in groups to present a business model. Congratulations to DaJuan for his team’s win at third place with a $750 prize for “Report U,” which is a program to assist students with writing. See the Rutgers-Camden News Now article here.
