Ohio Business Week places up to 150 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 volunteer mentor from the business community, students gain a competitive edge in college preparation, workplace readiness, and overall life success. This is the premier summer experience for current high school students to ignite their potential.
