FBLA/DECA Training Camp for Middle School Students

“Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art” - Andy Warhol

Understanding the intricate world of business is crucial for success in the modern world. Regardless of the field of work one enters, an understanding of business allows one to reach new heights. There is no limit to how early one can begin their business endeavors

Covering a wide range of topics such as how to come up with a business entrepreneurial plan to professional marketing techniques, students will also be prepared to compete in FBLA or DECA business competitions in high school. They will be immersed in the world of business with other students who also inspire to create change through business.
