DePaul Summer Programs Inspire Ambitious Teens

Over the summer, DePaul’s Driehaus College of Business invited high school students from across the Chicago area to participate in academic programs that introduced them to the higher education experience and potential future careers.

The Actuarial Academy, hosted by the Department of Finance, selected teen math scholars to learn about actuarial sciences careers, meet with professionals working in the field and participate in hands-on learning activities. The students formed teams to compete in actuarial challenges, with each team sponsored by a corporate partner.

The Department of Management organized the "Be Your Own Boss" program with the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA), BMO Harris and Macy’s. The six-week curriculum focused on career awareness, college readiness, team building and leadership skills.
