"Sales in the Global Market"

In preparation for Spring 2016 Online Trading Day please view, "Sales in the Global Market". It shows Virtual Enterprise students at Rhodes State College, Ohio participating in Online Trading Day. IVE Students at Rhodes State College applied their knowledge of science and technology to a simulated venture in our global enterprise network. They created websites to sell and purchase products utilizing the MarketMaker e-commerce platform. In this episode students pitch their business to a network of fellow student entrepreneurs across the world.

We encourage you to share this video with your students so they get a sense on what to expect during the Online Trading Day event.
