At Young Entrepreneurs Business Week, we cover more than just business fundamentals... Students learn about leadership, teamwork, networking, public speaking and more. During each program, YEBW incorporates inspirational speakers, interactive learning exercises and other professional growth activities.

At YEBW’s first-year 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.
Business Week is offered at all three campuses: University of Portland; Oregon State University and University of Oregon.
In the second-year 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.
Investing Week is offered at select campuses for students who completed Business Week.
At the third-year 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.
Entrepreneur Week is offered at select campuses for students who completed Business Week and Investing Week.
