Extra Circulars for Undergrad Business

I am high school sophomore hoping to major in business or something within the scope of business. What would be good extra circulars to have for applications? I am not interested in FBLA or DECA clubs, I am hoping for out of school extra circulars.

    Do not overlook the value of a teen job.

    No particular ECs (or awards for that matter) are needed to apply to undergrad business schools. Follow your interests and get involved in ECs you truly care about.

    How are your public speaking skills? The ability to communicate effectively is one of the most valuable attributes you can have to be successful in business.

    Having spent 20+ years in business, I found that the most interesting and sought after young people I encountered were those who had some background in public communication. Whether it was debate or drama or some other public performance based activity, it didn't matter.

    Business is selling. The better your ability to sell yourself, the more successful you will be.

    I would encourage you to join debate or forensics or drama or even audition for the school play.

    Since no one has has mentioned it I feel the need to tell you that the term is "extracurricular".
