Madasen Balch, Taylor Wall and Leah Simpson from the Eldon Career Center FBLA attended MISSOURI BUSINESS WEEK, an interactive summer conference for 200 high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. The conference teaches students how to manage and market a business in an enjoyable environment.
To simulate the business experience, the MBW student companies are involved with the management and marketing of imaginary retail products (hats or T-shirts). The groups learn how to make management decisions by playing a computer game that follows the financial history of their products through eight business quarters. Marketing is accomplished through the production of 30-second television commercials, new business profiles, a trade show and websites. Students compete for the best marketing strategies and bottom line.
Sponsored by the CENTER for Education & Private Enterprise, the not-for-profit foundation of the Missouri Association of REALTORS®, this statewide program is held annually at the University of Missouri in Columbia.
