Program Overview

Launch a career in business.

At the NSLC on Business & Entrepreneurship, you’ll learn what it takes to build a company from the ground up, tackling the wants and needs of your stakeholders, employees, and customers.

My NSLC experience was very fun and eye opening. It was cool to meet people from all over the world and collaborate on projects we were all interested in.
