ECU Business Experience
ECU Business Experience is a full-day event providing the opportunity for secondary students in Year 10 and Year 11 to meet like-minded, talented individuals from other schools in the metropolitan region, as well as be exposed to a tertiary education environment. ECU offers the program as a way to engage students who may be interested in studying business and to provide them with the opportunity to build communication, analytical and group skills.
Teams of six students start by participating in an interactive workshop from the ECU Business Edge program, designed to enhance communication, teamwork and presentation skills. School teams then apply what they have learnt to a case study and are given four hours to devise a creative, viable solution that tests their business skills. Teams present their analysis to a judging panel composed of talented and influential industry professionals.
Top performing schools from each heat attend an advanced ECU Business Edge workshop, developing new skills to be applied to a new case study challenge and presentation. In 2010, seven schools participated in the challenge, which will be repeated and extended in 2011.
