Global Business is a capstone course designed to provide Junior and Senior students with the skills and knowledge required to succeed in the global business world. Students are exposed to the various departments found within corporate culture by participating in a virtual business, the Virtual Enterprises International (VE) simulation, with other students around the globe. Emphasis is placed on using current business software, communications, and the Internet for business transactions. Fundraising for and attendance at the International Trade Fair in NYC takes place in April.
As a culmination of this year-long course, students will analyze, interpret, and present an annual business report which is a reflection of the year’s activities and used as a tool for future projection and planning. In addition, they will leave the course with an individually created portfolio that has been used to assess their performance and will convey their roles, abilities, and skills they have gained through taking the course.
Students who earn a minimum grade of “C” in Global Business are eligible to receive three (3) college credits and an official college transcript from Fairleigh Dickinson University which is part of the Middle College Program. Students must complete an application to apply to a specific department where they will focus and specialize.
