On Thursday, April 23rd, BETA had its annual Panel of Professionals Day in the school library. This year, five professionals came out to discuss their careers in a variety of fields including banking, marketing, graphic design, and human resources. After a session where our student moderators asked a variety of questions to our panel members, students in our audience where given a chance to ask their own questions regarding internships, daily challenges in their activities, and how well college prepared them for where they are today. The final part of the day was a "working lunch" where students got to eat their lunch with a panel member to gain further knowledge on their careers and their company. A big thank you goes out to the following professionals that took time out of their busy schedules to come out and share their experiences with our students:
On Sunday, April 12, the Business Education students arrived at UCLA for the annual Project ECHO Competition. This is a business competition where students present "shark tank style" in an attempt to receive funding for their business concept. The senior Capstone class wrote a 50- page business plan including an in depth account of the business operations, industry research/analysis, financials, and marketing plan. Then, presented the concept on stage at UCLA to potential investors. For the seventh year in a row, Charter Oak was honored and awarded 1st Place and a $1,000 check to continue their business operations and increase the scope an scale for next year. A job well done!
