Students receive hands-on experience running their own business and learning all the skills that come with it.
Why it matters
Not only does running a successful business look great on a resume, but students will also gain soft skills not taught in a classroom. This experiential education and newfound skills give the student reps a leg-up upon graduation and a competitive edge among peers.
A few examples include: improvement in communication skills, problem solving, independence, confidence, goal-setting, attitude, emotional intelligence, maturity, and work ethic.
