Business Finance Academy
On Wednesday, October 18, 2017, the Channel Islands High School Business and Finance Academy showed up in great numbers once again to the annual Entrees to Employment Business Networking Dinner event sponsored by VC Innovates with the Ventura County Department of Education. There were 21 CIHS (BFA) students and 2 teachers present for the event. The event was held at California Lutheran University this year, as it was two years ago. Students were provided an outstanding opportunity to learn how to network, practice networking in real time, and connect with professionals who work in their particular areas of interest.
