Last month, BizEd offered 43 outstanding high school students from Burlington, Camden, and Gloucester counties with a forum for lively discussions and an assortment of interactive activities specially designed to spark creativity, develop decision-making skills and reinforce the concept that the business world offers a host of exciting and profitable career opportunities. BizEd: A Leadership Program for High School Students was conducted at the Rutgers School of Business–Camden.
Students worked closely with Rutgers instructors to examine the disciplines of accounting, marketing, finance, and management, and learn the role that technology plays in business. They interacted with leading area executives who offered career guidance and up-to-the-minute insights regarding current job, business and economic trends.
Students graduated from BizEd during a special ceremony at Rutgers–Camden. Each graduate received certification of his or her participation.
