PSU Student to be The Next CEO
On April 22, ten business-minded PSU students will gather at the Penn Stater to compete in The Next CEO simulation, hosted by the Smeal College of Business. Think The Apprentice, minus the cheesy one-liners and the flowing comb-overs (unless one of the competitors wants to take this to the next level).
According to the Smeal website, competing students “will have to think on their feet as they answer questions about how their companies should respond to complex business crises and major world events.” I, for one, am expecting the hostile take-overs, shameless backstabbing, lobbying scandals, and extravagant bonus packages that have come to define life at the top of American business. More realistically, those who attend the open event can look forward to a tight competition between some sharp and well-prepared Penn Staters.

The Next CEO kicks off at 7:00 PM, April 22, in the President’s Lounge of the Penn Stater.
