Metro Tech continues its domination of the FBLA Virtual Business Management contests


Revengers Team: Christain Barrera, Erick Valenzuela, and Ahmad Stanikazi

Congratulations to the “Revengers” and “e-Lemon-ators” for qualifying to compete this summer, in Atlanta, Georgia, at the FBLA Future Business Leaders of America, National Leadership Conference!  Both teams are from Metro Tech High School’s FBLA-VIP chapter.


FBLA’s Virtual Business Management (VBM) challenge is an official competitive event sponsored by Knowledge Matters and FBLA.  This Internet based game challenges students to use highly visual simulation software to manage a bicycle shop.  The program teaches students to analyze data and then make good, quick decisions to keep their business profitable.


The first round of competition, in October, saw Metro Tech High Schools “Revengers” placing in the top eight; from over 400 competing teams nationwide!  The “e-Lemon-ators” came through in the second round, which just completed the end of February.   For the third time in 5 years, Metro Tech has 2 of the 16 qualifying teams nationwide!  They will compete at the end of June in a double elimination tournament held at FBLA Nationals in Atlanta, Georgia!
