Anchorage, AK – The Alaska Chamber recently named Nicole Schuh Alaska Business Week (ABW) Program Director.
Schuh joined the Alaska Chamber in October 2013. Prior to joining the Chamber, Schuh worked at the Alaska Aviation Museum as Operations Manager.

ABW gives high school students hands-on learning opportunities that explore their leadership skills and future career choices, while learning about the world of business. ABW simulates a business environment, immersing students in scenarios faced daily by business owners. Students are broken up into different “companies” which compete against each other. A team of business executives works directly with students throughout the week, advising and coaching each company in its pursuit of a winning strategy. In addition to the practical business skills students gain during the week, ABW graduates understand how their regular coursework is relevant inpreparing them for life after high school.
