More than 200 Erie, Crawford, and Allegheny County high school students in grades 9-12 participate in a stock market simulation and mock business courses each fall during Behrend Business Day at Penn State Behrend.
Behrend Business Day, co-sponsored by the Black School of Business and Future Business Leaders of America, is designed to help students gain an understanding of business basics by having them participate in a variety of activities. Mock business courses, for example, give teens an idea of what to expect when taking classes in a business major, such as accounting, finance, and management information systems. These experiences may help them determine whether they would like to pursue these fields after high school.
Participants also can network with Behrend faculty members and learn about the various academic programs offered by the college.
The event includes lunch and optional campus tours.
