ACES Hosts 100th Business Week Program at Ft. LeBoeuf High School
On Thursday, March 29, Pennsylvania Business Week celebrated its 100th program at Fort LeBoeuf High School.
In 1997, the Manufacturer & Business Association (MBA) in conjunction with Ft. LeBoeuf developed Pennsylvania Business Week. In 1999, the MBA turned the program over to Americans for the Competitive Enterprise System, Inc. (ACES).
Business Week is designed to allow teams of high school students to manage companies through a business simulation for an entire week. Students are taught how to manage finances, execute effective advertising campaigns, and work together as a team to achieve success. Business Week incorporates community volunteers to assist the students through out the week and, as a result, strengthens relationships between the local education and business communities and offers students real-life experience as they manage their simulated company.
In the 99 programs leading up to this year’s Fort LeBoeuf program, Business Week has been presented to more than 13,000 Pennsylvania high school students spanning five western Pennsylvania counties.
