After nearly 30 years of the Business World program, we have learned at least one thing… the Business World program is best served by the educators and counselors that pass the word along to their students. We can mail them as many brochures as we want, or send them countless emails, but it really means something when validated by the people they already trust the most – you.
So please talk about this program with your kids, and let us know if you would like us to come and present to your students – we love every opportunity to sit down with you, and them, face-to-face, and explain the merits of this program.
Business World Core Program
Business World is a four-day program that brings high school students and business volunteers together on a college campus to learn about the challenges facing our economy. It is an opportunity that will enable today’s students to prepare for their future in today’s increasingly competitive global marketplace.
The students will join a team of 10-12 who function as an imaginary "company" for the program. With the task of turning their company into a financial success, each company works harmoniously to create a unique product, develop marketing strategies, design a commercial, and compete in an online business simulation. The students will have the opportunity to interact with guest speakers and tour local companies to complete the hands-on experience.
In essence, each student will make all of the decisions that are demanded of real life company executives.

Business World Advanced Program
After completing the Business World core program, each student is eligible to return the following year for a more advanced program. The Advanced Program focuses more on certain aspects of the world of business such as marketing or business ethics.
