If any these things peak your interest, FHS Virtual Enterprise may be the course for you.
Virtual Enterprise is more than just another business class.
Instead of simply learning abstract and questionably applicable information via lecture, you will dive head first into business by running a virtual corporation: Bluetip Fitness, Inc. - and the real school bookstore: The Admiral Outlet.
Within each organization, your knowledge of business theories will be tested through actual experience, with real and virtual customers, products, problems, and scenarios!
Your ability to take initiative and your willingness to develop professionally will be keys to your success.
As a course, Virtual Enterprise is worth one credit per semester, and two semester participation is encouraged if possible. In Virtual Enterprise, you can expect the following:
Potential trade expositions in both Pigeon Forge and New York City
Guest speakers that can relate the functions of the company to the real world
Low homework load with few tests and quizzes, most tasks will be in class
Management of Admiral Outlet, the FHS apparel and gear shop
Hands-on business management in the areas of product development, marketing, sales, finance, and accounting
Variety of positions for a wide range of skill sets, including:
