Virtual Enterprise is a simulated business that is set up and run by students. With the guidance of a teacher (“consultant”) and real-world business partners, the students determine the nature of their business, its products and services, its management and structure, and engage in the daily operations of running a business. The Virtual Enterprise Program links students in a global business network. Emphasis is placed on using current business software, communications, and the Internet for business transactions.
