VIRTUAL ENTERPRISE
The idea of an office simulation can be traced back to the 17th Century.  In Europe, simulated practice firms have been established for many years as places for commercial training.  Since World War II, however, these simulated offices have evolved into a practical vehicle for interdisciplinary instruction and an in-school work experience.

After visiting practice firms in Vienna, Austria in 1994, the New York City High School Superintendents spearheaded the development of practice firms (virtual enterprises) in seven New York City public high schools. The year was 1996. Today there are 66 firms in fifty-three high schools within New York City, with many more in the planning stage. The New York City Department of Education is proud to have pioneered this concept in the United States.
