Ohio Business Week (OBW) is an exciting weeklong summer program that gives high school students from around the state a unique, hands-on experience with business and entrepreneurship.

The intense program brings a diverse group of young people and business people together to translate textbook business principles into “real world” business practices. Hosted on a college campus, students are also able to experience what campus life is like and lay the groundwork for a successful future!

Ohio Business Week is funded by the generous support of Ohio businesses, service organizations, foundations and members of the community. Through these partnerships, OBW has impacted the lives of more than 5,000 young people.
