The World of Business, 9-12
Knowledge@Wharton High School is an online journal for students interested in finding out more about business. Students can explore feature stories about teen-run companies and business trends; read articles on how the economy works and how careers take shape; listen to and view audio and video podcasts about business’s most creative and color characters in sports, entertainment, retail, and hi-tech. Students can choose a portfolio and compete against other students in simulation games. It also includes a video glossary where Wharton professors explain the terms using examples high school students can relate to. For example, one professor tells students what an “angel investor” is, using Justin Timberlake’s character in The Social Network.
