ATHENS, WV (WVNS) — High school students are ready to compete in Concord University’s 30th annual Concord Business Challenge.

The Business Challenge will be held on Thursday, October 26, 2023, starting at 9:00 a.m. in the Alexander Fine Arts Building, and students will go to different parts of the campus for the challenge exams.

The business challenge is made to give junior and senior high school students from West Virginia and Virginia a chance to test their business knowledge by competing in various business related academic competitions such as finance, computer applications, management, accounting, marketing, business math, business communications, hospitality, and economics.

We are excited to bring high school juniors and seniors on campus. Students get a taste of the college experience while having the opportunity to showcase their business knowledge and skill and a chance for scholarships. We look forward to this event each year.
