Throughout the school, tents were set up selling baked goods. Stacy Elsbury’s International Business class teamed up with My Cuisine classes to create “bakeries.”
In teams of five, the business students mimicked the process of setting up a real business, taking into account target audiences, cost, and product. They then worked with students from My Cuisine classes to pick and create foods to sell in their bakery.
This is a yearly event, Elsbury said, and is part of the student’s semester final.
“The students spent a month working on this project,” Elsbury said. “At first, people don’t understand how this connects to international business. But as part of the reflection, for the final, they have to talk about these concepts would be applied to market this to a global audience.”
The bakeries sold goods to students today, and will be open tomorrow as well. Junior Hanna Abdul-Khaleq visited a few of the student bakeries today, and enjoyed seeing all of the different businesses and trying the foods.
“There were some really cool tents set up and see all the work the students put into their business,” Abdul-Khaleq said. “And all the food was really good.”
