Five high school students proved they are ready to become future business leaders by winning BizEd, an intensive two-week summer program at the Rutgers School of Business–Camden.

The winning students are: Elizabeth Angelucci (Cherry Hill/Cherry Hill High School East); Blaise Leonchuck (Runnemede/Triton Regional High School); Mike Miller (Southampton/Seneca High School); Yasmeen Torres (Camden/Camden Academy Charter High School); and Ciara Wulf (Hoehenkirchen-Siegertsbrunn, Germany/Gymnasium Ottobrunn).

The students were awarded free Kindle Fire tablets for their accomplishments during the camp, which is designed to prepare the rising high school seniors for the rigors of collegiate business education.

From July 8 to 17, 27 teens were introduced to theory and practice of accounting, finance, management, marketing, and technology during the BizEd camp. They worked closely with Rutgers–Camden faculty to examine these business disciplines while meeting leading executives, visiting local companies, and participating in team-building and problem-solving activities designed to develop skills essential to being a successful business professional.  The students were awarded points for activities completed throughout the program.

Students graduated from BizEd during a special ceremony at Rutgers–Camden on July 17. Each graduate received certification of his or her participation.
