In just seven days, Washington Business Week places high school students in a dynamic workplace simulation where they role play as industry professionals, sharpen their communication skills, launch a company, and solve real-world challenges.
Students take the lead as their team races against the clock to develop a world-changing idea and pitch it to potential investors at the end-of-week competition. Guided by a mentor from the professional sector, students learn to work as a team, explore careers, take a test run of university life, build a network with professionals and future leaders, earn college credit, and maybe even win a scholarship.
Washington Business Week is a non-profit educational program, supported by over 100 Washington State organizations and businesses, including Microsoft, PEMCO Insurance, The Boeing Company, and many more. This allows us to keep student tuition as low as possible.
Don’t let price stand in your way – scholarships and tuition assistance can reduce your cost even further.
For almost 40 years, we have provided 60,000 high school students with a competitive edge on college readiness, career advancement, and overall life success. Discover what thousands of young people now know about themselves – how to make an amazing impact in the 21st century workplace.
