Lehigh University's Pennsylvania School for Global Entrepreneurship got under way this week.

The four-week residential program for high school students from around the world began its 13th year on Sunday.

The school offers an intensive curriculum on leadership, entrepreneurship, effective business practices and cultural understanding in today's global market.

Students will work on team projects that tackle real issues from businesses such as Just Born candy-maker in Bethlehem and the Lehigh Valley IronPigs baseball team in Allentown.

They'll present their analyses to these organizations at the program's conclusion.

This year's class includes 26 international students from 16 nations, as well as students from Pennsylvania and other U.S. states.

The program concludes Aug. 3.
