The Apprentice Challenge

Discover and Explore Your Passion — Annual High School Special Event Series

Business is what drives our world. How do you start a business? Market it and make it as successful as a major corporation such as Facebook? It all starts with an idea. On Friday, November 4, 2016, by working with expert business faculty and marketing professionals, you’ll learn essential and relevant marketing components, including the four P’s and how to successfully create a marketing plan. Then you’ll test your skills and work collaboratively in teams to develop a marketing plan based on a sample case assignment that will be presented to our esteemed panel of judges. The team that creates the most successful marketing plan will be awarded the coveted title of the Adelphi Apprentice.
