Program Overview

At LAS, education isn’t limited to the borders of a classroom. We seek out every chance to connect our students with impactful hands-on learning opportunities so they can see the practical applications of their studies at work in the real world. We do this by augmenting traditional classes with events that build on students’ passions and address current global issues, helping them to develop fundamental skills in critical thinking, entrepreneurship, and teamwork.
As an Exclusive partner, ASDAN China will select no more 25 students to attend the LAS Summer School.
