The Entrepreneurship Leadership Accelerator (ELA)
The Entrepreneurship Leadership Accelerator (ELA) program provides opportunities for students to exercise critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, creativity, communication, and debate.
ELA is an intensive two (2) weeks boot camp that successfully leverages individual strengths while maximizing the leadership potential in every student. The goal of the program is to foster excellence by creating the next generation of leaders who will have an entrepreneurial mindset.

Our classes offer hands-on participation with unconventional lectures that require active participation. ELA provides the tools for students to be able to practice and develop critical thinking and problem solving while exercising their communications skills.
The professor will use the case-based study method to teach different subjects in a very dynamic way, inviting students to participate, work in groups to problem solve, debate, and find solutions to very unusual problems.
Students will be challenged to ‘think outside the box’ and be creative with their solutions as they will be discussing domestic and international issues and be challenged to propose unique and unconventional solutions for highly complex problems experienced on a global level.
Workshops feature sessions on critical thinking, personal branding, and public speaking. They are designed to identify personal strengths and individual leadership styles while developing students’ communications skills.
Students will participate in presentation simulations to learn about the power of body language, and how to present their ideas to various audiences.
SITE VISITS & EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
The program provides the opportunity for students to learn outside the classroom and participate in extracurricular activities. They will visit non-profit organizations and startups, as well as influential organizations located in the Greater Boston, being able to develop a greater understanding about different careers as they talk with local professionals during the visits.
For entertainment, they will go to a music concert, eat at local restaurants, and enjoy the Boston harbor! Students will make connections for life while exploring the culturally rich and fun places of Boston.
At ELA, we encourage our students to become more. The program fosters excellence by creating the next generation of innovators, entrepreneurs, and leaders.
We are seeking top students who are intellectually curious and inspired to learn. Students who embrace challenges and have the courage to make a difference.
