  Our Spring 2014 Online Trading Day Recap

On April 7th & 9th, 2014 the CUNY Institute for Virtual Enterprise at Baruch College hosted its Spring 2014 Online Trading Day. The event, which spanned over four different sessions, gave virtual student firms the opportunity to showcase their companies, products and services to other student firms using the GotoMeeting, an online meeting technology. The presentations were supported by PowerPoint presentations of their businesses and online stores.

Following the presentations all participating VE students were encouraged to use their virtual credit cards and purchase from the respective stores on IVE's virtual economy at www.ivefinancial.com. Each session was filled to capacity with a total of 40 presentations that featured virtual student businesses from New York, Austria, Ohio, South Carolina and Arizona.
