Virtual Business (Bohlen & Sackett Career & Tech Centers)
Have an idea for the perfect product or service? Here’s your chance to set up a virtual business, complete with all the departments you’d see in a real company––product development, sales, marketing, accounting and information technology. You’ll buy and sell your product, pay salaries, earn paychecks, pay taxes, negotiate loans and interact with other virtual/simulated businesses established by students around the world. Learn the daily operations of a business… without any actual risk! The culminating event has you participating in a trade fair where you’ll set up a booth to showcase your product or service in a venue with other Virtual Business Enterprise classes from around the nation and around the world. Virtual Business is an ideal program for seniors who are following a business career pathway.
