Run a Virtual Business during School Holidays

Senior secondary school students interested in knowing how business works can now enjoy the popular three-day ECOMAN program during school holidays.

Students will have the unforgettable experience of running virtual businesses from inside the CBD offices of some of Brisbane’s leading companies and professional firms.

For more than 20 years, the Queensland Private Enterprise Centre (QPEC) has been providing ECOMAN (ECOnomic MANagement) programs to thousands of students across Queensland. Guided by accredited facilitators, participating students assume senior management positions in competing companies which they run over four years of fluctuating commercial fortunes compressed into the three days.  They have the stimulation of doing business within the real world offices of their venue hosts.

ECOMAN is now being offered during 26-28 June 2017 for a charge of $180 per student.  Parents are invited to book Year 10, 11 and 12 students by requesting an enrolment form by emailing   For information on the ECOMAN program run by QPEC, see
