Washington Business Week

Attention, High School Students! It's Time to Get down to Business

BECU offers high school students a discount on Washington Business Week, a summer program all about teamwork and leadership.

Sign up for Washington Business Week

It's time for local high school students to gear up for Washington Business Week (WBW) –a week-long opportunity for students across the state to learn about teamwork, leadership and setting goals. 

During WBW, students run a simulated business, face real-life challenges and prepare for their futures. Participating students have the opportunity to stay on campus at various universities around the state and experience a college environment. 

Who can participate?

Public, private or home school students currently in grades 9–12 are eligible to attend. No business experience is needed.

How much does it cost?

WBW is fortunate to have many financial supporters. Through their generosity, students receive sponsorships that partially offset the full $1620 cost of the program, bringing the cost to students down to $880. Plus, BECU members get an additional $100 off!

Program tuition for BECU members: $780 by entering PROMO Code BECU100 at time of registration.
Additional financial assistance is available. Apply directly to WBW website

The tuition covers:

  • Two college credits (no extra application or cost)
  • A week's stay on a college campus 
  • All meals
  • Program materials 
  • T-shirt
