With an emphasis on college and career readiness, VE is an in-school, live, global business simulation that offers students a competitive edge through project-based, collaborative learning and the development of 21st-century skills in entrepreneurship with a concentration on marketing, global business, problem solving, communication, personal finance and technology. Under the guidance of a teacher-facilitator and business mentors, students create and manage their virtual businesses from product development, production and distribution to marketing, sales, human resources, accounting/finance and web design. We transform the classroom into a working office. The simulated business replicates not only the functions of a real business but its demands as well. It is a combination of hard and soft skills needed to be successful in an career path.
