As most of us have learned throughout our lives to deal with disappointment, it is always remarkable how our students will deal with and approach what they believe is fair/unfair.

In order for us to improve over time we need the ability to take and receive feedback.  As in real world examples a business case competition prepares our students for what types of questions an executive in the boardroom asks to employees and consultants. Over the past few weeks Graduate, Undergraduate, and High School students have been preparing to deliver an interesting case about financial planning, forecasting, and customer wants and needs in the retail market.  In this preparation there are long nights a lot of research and then need for information to summarized.  The students have had  time to prepare for what is necessary to deliver a presentation to a panel of judges.

The case competition teams were able to impress the judges and the competition.  This experience showed our high school students that anything is possible and that they could also do the presentation and why we show them the skills that we know will be necessary in college and their professional careers.

What will be next for them?  the Sage continues
