The Microbusinesses are the most engaging and provoking learning experiences we can possibly offer to our first-year business students. This isn’t “monopoly money” or digital coin; these are real bank accounts with financial resources loaned and an expectation for profits.
A team of fellow students helps you plan sales and marketing strategies; our DamLab makerspace is your factory for prototypes and production, and we offer all the academic support you need to create and launch a microbusiness. What could go wrong!!!!
“To be honest, I expected the first year of business school to be all book work — just reading about business without much doing — with junior and senior year being when we’d write business plans.
“So for us to be working together as freshmen to start our own business and launch a real product is pretty exciting. Not to mention, our product could really take off, which makes this much more motivating than your average team project.”
It started out like any other day at Beaverton High School for Regan Mott. She was sitting in the cafeteria, visiting with friends. Mott was waiting to hear back about a scholarship she had applied for to attend Oregon State University.
Mott has been coming to Oregon State her whole life, attending sporting events with her family. It’s where her parents met, and the college was her top choice, too. Before heading back to class, Mott refreshed her email one more time ... “When I saw that I got an email from the College of Business, I started freaking out,” Mott recalls. “I was too afraid to open it.”
I enjoy challenges, and I love to learn. That desire to learn and solve tough problems has guided me my entire career.
