Business Academy second-year students create a business with no more than 5 students. They learn how to write a business plan, figure out start-up cost, create a financial plan, employee want ads, job description and interview questions. They learn about marketing, create different types of advertisements and actually create a commercial. They also select a foreign country and create a marketing plan for that country. The students also create a 3-D project of their business and present it to the class and local business owners. This is a yearlong project. This class prepares the students for Virtual Enterprise.
