When & Where
Business Icon® is an Australian young leader’s competition that brings together top business leaders and university students to bridge the gap between education and employment.
The competition challenges young people to work on real life business tasks, first in teams and then as individuals to prove they stand out in a highly competitive environment.
Business Icon works with Australian based charities and social causes, to enable students to experience what it means to be a leader with a social conscience, using their skills and creativity to help those in need. In 2012, Business Icon has partnered with Opportunity International, an Australian based micro-finance charity, to support them in raising awareness and funds through the competition.
The competition aims to inspire young people today to become the business leaders of tomorrow.
Business Icon is a program run by the Australian Experiential Learning Centre (AELC). Experiential education is a philosophy and methodology in which educators purposefully engage with learners in direct experience and focused reflection in order to increase knowledge, develop skills and clarify values, resulting in meaningful and long-lasting learning.
