High school juniors and seniors learned what it’s like to work in the field of business during a residential camp hosted by Wright State’s Raj Soin College of Business.
The five-day camp provided an experiential learning environment that helped students explore their interests in business.
Students learned skills in economics, accounting, marketing, finance, management, information systems management and entrepreneurship. Students also participated in campus activities and networked with students from other schools across the region.
“Everyone here was amazing,” said Anya Barrera, a high school junior from Beavercreek.
Students work closely with the College of Business faculty, staff, students and local business executives. “It just means a lot that we get to interact with the students and try to help them learn about business,” said Jonah Sandler, CEO of Scene 75, this year’s host company.
Students are divided into teams with a business student-coach and work on real-world business challenges. Each team has a different business problem to solve.
At the end of the camp, local business professionals judge team presentations and solutions. Members of the winning team each receive a $500 scholarship from the College of Business.
Synchrony Financial, Ohio Small Business Development Centers and Scene 75 sponsored the camp.
