MVHS Virtual Enterprise students set to host an upcoming golf tournament
Students at Murrieta Valley High School, who participate in the Virtual Business Program, are starting to prepare for their next competitive season. Virtual Enterprise is an internationally recognized business simulation program that turns students into executives. The student-run club will build a business that replicates all of the functions of an actual business, then compete across the state and country against other schools in a variety of competitions.
In order to afford these trips, the club is looking to organize a giant fundraiser, which will be an annual golf tournament to be held at the Bear Creek Country Club. This year, they want to organize this golf tournament on Monday, November 22.
âThis class provides an incredibly unique experience by enabling today’s students to become the business leaders of tomorrow,â says Erika Salcedo, MVHS student and vice president of public relations for their virtual business class.
Currently, the students are working to complete the creation of their company, Desert Rose. Desert Rose will sell a line of fashion accessories in cactus leather ranging from handbags to wallets. Their marketing works on establishing factories, graphic design creates logos for the business and accounting works on the financial aspects of the business.
Murrieta Valley Virtual Enterprise students plan to attend five trade shows across the country this year. Students are looking for sponsorships, donations and golfers for their next tournament. Updates on the program and ways to contribute to it are available at https://mvhsvirtualenterprise.weebly.com.
