Fifteen students in the Williamson College of Business Administration at Youngstown State University present lessons to more than 230 pupils at Poland Union Elementary School as part of JA in a Day on Friday, May 1.

The YSU students, both undergraduate and graduate, will teach business and free enterprise using lessons developed by Junior Achievement.

“Our mission is to prepare students to be leaders in their careers and their communities,” said Betty Jo Licata, WCBA dean. “Sharing our time to educate children about free enterprise is a wonderful opportunity for our students. We are proud to partner with Junior Achievement and Poland Union Elementary School for this exciting program.”

The YSU students are part of Beta Gamma Sigma, the international honor society serving business programs accredited by AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition a business student can receive in a business program accredited by AACSB International.
