Get an idea of what UBW is like here.

Celebrating its 40th year in 2020, Utah Business Week (UBW) is an experience you don’t want to miss! UBW is a week-long summer program that gives high school students (incoming juniors and seniors) real life business experience. Students learn business tactics from top industry professionals while participating in a business simulation. Students create marketing materials, research and develop ideas, make decisions on pricing, and so much more. Students work within teams (companies) to create a product, design a logo, and produce a radio commercial. They then present their ideas, compete against other teams, and get evaluated by business professionals.

UBW is hosted on Utah State University's beautiful campus in Logan, Utah. Students stay in the dorms and participate in a variety of fun activities on campus. On top of great business experience, UBW is a fun way to get a feel for what college life is like.

UBW will prepare students to enter the business world. They will rub shoulders with some of Utah’s most prominent business professionals. We also highlight up-and-coming young business professionals. It’s not all business, though. Students get to participate in dances, live entertainment, games, skits, and much more. And thanks to our generous sponsors, tuition is just $100. We’d love to see you there. (Applications available soon!)

UBW is also a 501(c)(3) organization run by the Foundation for Private Enterprise, dedicated to preparing high school students for the business world. Click here to view the 2019 UBW annual report.
