40 students are dressed in business attire, they’ve already sat through an hour and a half of valuation presentations, they are neck deep in the financial data for Kayak and Google — and it’s only 10 a.m. on day 2!
Over the course of the week, these adventurous students (who have opted out of the typical Spring Break vacation) will get an intensive view of how to build, grow, and sustain a company.
Their teachers are Holy Cross alum that coming back to campus to share their stories and introduce important business techniques that will help these students be more prepared for jobs in the business world.
The schedule looks something like this:
Monday: Starting A Company
Tuesday: Valuing and Growing a Company
Wednesday: Business Market Game
Thursday: Managing the Momentum of a Global Enterprise
Friday: …. is a little different.
On Sunday night, the students were broken into teams and given the task of (over the course of only this week) creating a business geared towards the 30-45 year old demographic. Each team is responsible for coming up with a new idea, creating a business plan and presenting their business to an executive panel that will pick a winning team at the end of the week.
Friday morning, all 8 teams, will present their plans in hopes of being the victor!
We’ll update you on Friday afternoon with the results!
