How Does The Program Work Around School?

At Summer Management Program each member of the management team has been through this program and were all at one time students with school at the top of our priority list. We specialize in helping students to manage their time around school academics and extracurricular activities. With emphasis on weekly goal setting and organizational skills our program is specifically designed to support hard working students to market, sell manage and lead their own business in the pre-season.
