Thank you, volunteers!
The Business World summer program is a success year after year, in large part, because of the dedicated business professionals who volunteer their time, energy, manpower, and expertise to mentor the students that attend our events. Our group of talented faculty advisors is made up of business men and women from all over Wisconsin, from various industries, and, some of them, have been volunteering since the program’s inception.
Once the students arrive at the program, they are divided into teams of 10-12 students who function as an imaginary “company” for the program, with you as their advisor. With the task of turning their company into a financial success, each company works harmoniously to create a unique product, develop marketing strategies, design a commercial, and compete in an online business simulation. In addition, they have the opportunity to interact with guest speakers and tour local companies to complete the hands-on experience.
Interested in becoming an advisor, or helping out the Business World staff? Contact the program’s director, Jack Orton, via e-mail or by phone (608)-661-6904 for more information.
