Each semester, students in the Contemporary Business sections select a project which they will operate like a business.  The students form teams to handle the research and development, production and distribution, marketing, finances, and management related to their project.  Students gain a greater understanding of how these components must function effectively, in order for a business to be successful.  This fall,  the students  marketed care packages to the parents of students living in the residence halls.  The classes decided to donate a portion of their profits to Noah Project and Children’s Miracle Network.
