Educating, Inspiring, and Impacting the Leaders of Tomorrow
Washington Business Week helps people realize their potential by creating an experience in which students, business leaders, and educators partner to teach and inspire one another to be responsible employees, employers, and citizens.
Washington Business Week’s programs place high school students in a dynamic simulation where they compete as industry professionals, sharpen communication skills, and face real-world challenges. With the guidance of a mentor from the business community, students gain a competitive edge on college preparation, workplace readiness, and overall life success. If you’re a current high school student (grade 9-12), this is the place to ignite your potential.
Week-long residential programs are held at three university campuses in the summer and focus on the areas of business, healthcare, agri-energy, and manufacturing. Business Week programs are also offered in eleven states and internationally in Poland and Italy. In-school programs are offered in rural areas throughout Washington state during the academic year including Centralia, Aberdeen, Montesano, and Willapa. At each program, students undertake hands-on projects providing them the opportunity to operate a business and create a new product.
