At YEBW’s first-year, flagship program, students learn how to run a company as a team. Together, they compete in business simulations (BizSim) on a common product and develop an original product or service. During the week, they form companies, make decisions and develop business presentations.
Offered at: University of Portland, University of Oregon, and Oregon State University.
Finance Week expands personal and business financial literacy. In teams, students create their own small business finance plans and run through individual money management simulations... Teams examine sales forecasts, budgets, cash-flow statements, balance sheets, profit and loss statements, break-even analysis and more.

In this program, students break into small groups to compete in a stock portfolio competition and do a deeper exploration of business simulation (BizSim). Throughout the week, they learn about investing fundamentals and analysis. At the end, they present recommendations on whether to buy, sell or hold stocks.

Students explore creative promotional-outreach methods. In teams, students create their own marketing plans—including product promotions, pricing, placement, packaging and positioning. Teams take a deeper dive into SWOT, competitive and market analysis, as well as sales forecasting and budgeting.
Offered at: University of Oregon
As our capstone program, students develop their own individual business plan presentations. Unlike Business Week, where students build businesses in a group, Entrepreneur Week focuses on independent business creation and development. At the end, students present their business plan pitches.
