UCLA EXTENSION COURSE Originally designed for business owners, key executives, managers, and those interested in developing a business, the course teaches participants how to define a business model and form strategies that help a company thrive -- even in intensely competitive industries. We’ve worked with UCLA Extension to adapt it to a two-week camp format for high school students. The key to reducing risks and increasing the chances of success in business is to develop a business model that delivers unique value. To accomplish this, you must be able to objectively analyze the competitive landscape and, through innovation, articulate this unique value so you can implement a strategy and anticipate the financial rewards. Topics include competitive analysis, creating and defining a selling advantage, identifying the customer, and honing a strategy. Real-world situations are used for examples of application. Participants leave with the tools needed to create value and are thus able to work on a business rather than for a business. Throughout the course, participants work in teams to explore the various issues a founding team must tackle in order to launch and run a successful company. By the end of the camp, each team will present a business plan to a panel of founders and investors for a chance to win some cool prizes. Who knows, your idea might even get funded! *Credits may lead to the award of formal certificates by UCLA Extension, and may be transferable for advanced standing in degree programs in professional studies elsewhere.

DELOITTE INNOVATION MODULES The camp schedule includes five sessions of our Innovation Module, where each student selects an innovation-led industry — CleanTech, FinTech or HealthTech — as an elective. This gives students an opportunity to see how the concepts discussed in lecture are applied in the industry by real companies. You are guided by consultants from Deloitte and meet with founders, leaders, and investors from the region’s most cutting-edge companies. We present these sessions in an array of formats, including company presentations, case studies, panel discussions and site visits.



Collaboration, innovation and impact are, increasingly, among the most critical work skills to possess. So, this course uses entrepreneurship immersion to provide experience in these necessary skills by examining the essential elements of success.


Since the heart of innovation and entrepreneurship is about being able to navigate uncharted territory, the course promotes a human-centered, self-learning and inquiry-based approach where students are actively involved in their own acquisition of understanding. This highly interactive course encourages attendees to participate throughout. This includes describing concepts with real-world examples and discussing them. Participants are challenged to explore the concept of value through these examples and their group projects. The course concludes with a pitch day. This is learning through doing.
