Polish Business Week is a six-day summer camp organized for high school students. Activities during the camp are conducted by the best managers of well-known US companies such as Boeing and Microsoft, and supported by numerous volunteers.
At the camp, the students learn the principles of enterprise operation and acquire the skills necessary to effectively manage a business. The Polish Business Week is based on the American summer school course Washington Business Week. At the camp, all classes are in English. Each year, courses are organized in Gdansk, Gdynia, and Boleslawowo, with hundreds of students from Poland and dozens from the USA taking part.
The event takes place under the patronage of the city authorities of Gdansk, Gdynia, and the District of Starogard Gdanski (the course in Boleslawowo).
Polish Business Week is also supported by the US Embassy in Poland. The first camp in Gdansk in 2011 was visited by the US Ambassador — Mr. Lee Feinstein.
Members of the Euvic Group have been actively supporting Polish Business Week since 2009, in terms of both financing and organization.
