Summer Training Program
The Bull City Business Institute (BCBI) is an intensive program planned and facilitated by Cristo Rey Research Triangle, our Job Partners, and faculty. In conjunction with the continuous development curriculum offered to all students throughout the year, the BCBI prepares students for success at their corporate jobs. All incoming freshmen must complete this training to be officially accepted to our school.
The BCBI equips students for their Corporate Work Study assignments with training in three key areas:
Personal development: Students receive advice on public speaking, positive work attitude, and conflict resolution.
Business etiquette: Students learn about professional behavior, attire, and phone etiquette, how to greet and converse with adults in the workplace, and how to be proactive during office downtime.
Entry-level office skills: Students learn how to operate copiers, fax machines, computers and phone systems. They will also learn the basics of the Microsoft Office Suite, with an emphasis on Excel.
As part of the CWSP Program, students are transported to and from work everyday using the Cristo Rey Research Triangle Shuttle.
