BAL Students are All About Business


Thanks to foundation support, select BAL students participated in an intense Youth About Business Camp program.

Should Disney buy Hasbro? What about Alphabet acquiring Lyft? Students formed teams to analyze simulated M&A deals. Taught by local executives, students learned skills needed to understand complex business transactions and had a chance to hone their public speaking skills.

Volunteer executives include: accountants, attorneys, investment bankers, marketing specialists, and IT and HR specialists. Senior-level executives serve as judges and speakers.

We were fortunate to sit in on their Powerpoint presentations to judges and audience members, followed by a Q&A session where they were asked about anti-trust concerns, earnings dilution and cultural fit. Our students are on the rise.
