Virtual Enterprise is a simulated business that operates in a competitive environment with the goals of:
  • Educating students with key knowledge needed with developing a business.

  • Experiencing the feeling of how a real business is developed and how one operates.

  • Inspiring students to develop a better work ethic.

The course teaches students how to set up a simulated business.  Students are given the responsibility to run day-to-day business operations in order to prepare them for a real business environment. Students establish the products and/or services of the business, as well as develop its organizational structure.  These tasks are accomplished under the guidance of a consultant (teacher) with support of real business partners in the community.  Students will create/design a business name and logo, company catalog, a business plan, employee manual, business cards, flyers, company shirts, company website, commercial, company newsletter, and all other aspects pertaining to a start-up business venture.  Students will also attend several trade fairs, where they will market their product/service and compete with other Virtual Enterprise teams in a variety of business related competitions.
