JCU Heroes in Business is a one-day program that was a joint collaboration between James Cook University (JCU) and Queensland Country Bank held at the Mercure, Rockhampton on Thursday 16 September.
Students in Year 11 and 12 had a unique opportunity to explore business, law, or finance careers. Rockhampton Girls Grammar School representatives were Jordan, Andie and Hareem.
Students worked in small groups over the course of the day and developed a business idea, undertaking activities to explore human resources, decision making, financing, law and finally pitching the idea to potential investors. This hands on, engaging day provided learning, networking and a bit of fun!
This program will be offered again in 2022, so keep an eye out for the registration link next year.
