The world of business is changing, and your perspective is needed!
Interested in creating solutions for today’s business problems and gaining experience working in diverse teams while developing connections with Leeds School of Business faculty, staff, and corporate partners? If so, we invite you to apply to be part of the KeyBank Business Leadership Program (BLP) this upcoming summer. BLP is designed to provide a high-impact learning experience through a case study. Participating students will gain hands-on experience competing in a case challenge set to solve real-world business problems.
As part of the BLP program, participants are tasked with working in teams to create and implement a marketing campaign for our corporate partners. The team that creates the best solution will win a $1000 scholarship to the University of Colorado Leeds School of Business.
IT’S FREE — the cost of tuition is generously supported by KeyBank, the Leeds School of Business, and corporate partners. Our 2023 corporate partners and college partners included KeyBank, Key Equipment Finance, Burridge Center for Finance, CU Real Estate Center, and Deloitte.
The only expectation is that you participate for the full duration of the program, which includes staying overnight, having fun, networking, and stepping out of your comfort zone.
