The 32nd annual South Carolina Business Week will commence July 26-31 on the campus of Presbyterian College in Clinton. Each year, the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce’s Business Week program contributes to the preparation of young adults for the business environment by introducing them to the principles of leadership, teamwork and the American free enterprise system while promoting self-reliance, individual responsibility, public speaking skills and entrepreneurship.
During the “career readiness” week, teams of top level high school students develop mock companies, led by company advisors (CAs) loaned from some of South Carolina’s most successful legacy companies like Michelin, SCANA, Colonial Life, CH2M Hill, SERVPRO, Grow Financial and Sun Solutions. When the students are not working on their business simulations in company teams, they are touring a multinational company, attending business or personal skill lectures, unveiling their “apps” to a Shark Tank panel, auditioning for a diverse talent show, sculpting new business ideas with “junk,” learning about life on a college campus and making new friends.
Business Week is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the high school students who attend to learn and live together on a college campus at little to no cost to them or their families.
