High School Critical Thinking, Problem Solving & Creativity

Berkeley Business Academy for Youth


"I have truly enjoyed my experience here at B-BAY. It has allowed to me to expand beyond my limits in ways I never thought I could. It has introduced me to amazing friends that I never would have met. It has also given me the priceless opportunity to experience the city of Berkeley and life as a college student. B-BAY has been such a unique experience that will remember for the rest of my life." Student, 2017

"I loved the program and everything that they taught! I thought the professors were incredible and experienced in their topic. Even though it was a lecture, it was very fun and exciting. The field trips to Santa Cruz, SF, and even VISA ere really fun and interesting. I loved the amazing experiences I got from this camp and the community in the dorms... Overall though, it was an amazing opportunity to learn so much about business, VISA, and Berkeley." Student, 2017

"We did not know what to expect. However, by the end of the program we were blown away with how much [students] learned and positive learning experience. Well done BBAY team." Parent, 2017

"The B-BAY high school case study session was probably one of the best experiences I have had as a student.... I enjoyed all the lecturers, readings and activities and the program set up and wish to come back next year."

"The last fourteen days have taught me a lot about business, of course, but most of all, it's taught me a lot about myself.... I'm proud of myself and grew a lot, learning how to work with all different types of people."

"It exceeded our expectations. When we saw the quality of the showcase presentations and the questions being asked by the participants we had to remind ourselves that these guys are still in high school."
