STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS

Each year, Business Week offers bright young minds the unique opportunity to interact with business leaders and student peers to learn more about the ins and outs of the business world and a successful career.

 

Business Week provides students the opportunity to learn about all aspects of business and test their newly acquired knowledge in a computer simulation designed to achieve a real company feel with challenging, real-world situations. Along with an emphasis on teamwork and leadership skills, Business Week includes programs on entrepreneurship, ethics in business, leadership profiling and the significance of diversity in business.
