BOP Leadership Summit

This one-day camp will give students an inside view of the Daniels School of Business, but more importantly, it will encourage them to see themselves as the great leaders of tomorrow. 

- Darren Henry, Managing Director, Dr. Cornell A. Bell Business Opportunity Program

The BOP Leadership Summit (BLS) is an opportunity for high school students to explore the world of business and Purdue's Daniels School of Business. The BLS experience encourages and invests in the leadership skills and individual potential within every student attending the summit.
