Babylon Junior-Senior High School students in the school’s Virtual Enterprise Class recently participated in the sixth annual Virtual Enterprises International Business and Entrepreneurship Leadership Conference, as hosted by LIU Post. 

During the event, students attended important lectures from keynote speakers about possible career pathways, and were granted the opportunity to network with more than 1,200 other students enrolled in Virtual Enterprises from across Long Island. 

Taking what they learned from the conference, students will be competing in a trade show and preparing a business plan presentation this upcoming January.

According to instructor Claire Reilly, Virtual Enterprises teaches students business skills, while engaging them in competition with local and international firms. Additionally, the course grants the students eligibility for up to for six college credits from Farmingdale State College.
