Business World

The Chamber of Manitowoc County is pleased to offer the amazing opportunity to send four area high school students to attend the week-long, Business World 2017.  Business World 2017 is held two separate times and locations in the summer of 2017. 

Week 1:  June 18-21, St. Norbert College, DePere and Week 2: July 23-26, Edgewood College, Madison 

At Business World, teams of 10-12 students function as an imaginary “company” for the week.  With the task of turning their company into a financial success, each group works harmoniously to create a unique product, develop marketing strategies, design a commercial and compete in an online business simulation.  In addition, students will have the opportunity to interact with guest speakers and tour local companies to complete the hands-on experience.  In essence, these future business leaders will make all of the decisions demanded of real life company executives.

Students that are accepted may choose their own roommate at the program.  Dorm rooms are NOT co-ed.  Edgewood College accommodates 3 boys per room and 3 girls per room; St. Norbert College accommodates 2 boys per room and 2 girls per room.  Again, all fees are paid for by The Chamber of Manitowoc County.  (Transportation to, and from the college is furnished by the parents/guardians.)

Click here for an application. Applications are due by Friday, May 12, 2017.  Applications can be dropped off, or mailed to:

The Chamber of Manitowoc County
Attn:  Business World Scholarship Committee
1515 Memorial Dr.
