About the Center
The LEAD Summer Business Institute is a college preparatory program that introduces Native American, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian high school students in their junior year to exciting careers in business and finance. Native students join other students from diverse communities and live on a college campus, take interactive courses taught by nationally renowned professors and attend corporate site visits. Last year, students attended programs at Dartmouth College, Duke University, Stanford University and the University of Pennsylvania.
In addition to taking classes in marketing, accounting, finance, economics and ethics, students also learn about the relevance of business, finance and economic development for Native communities. During this time, tribal leaders and Native people working in the financial services industry serve as motivational speakers and help students to understand how they can make an impact in their communities by pursuing careers in finance.
