Moguls-in-Training Workbook

Throughout 2020-2021, Planet Mogul operated through a hybrid model of virtual and distance learning. With the generous support of Bristol Myers Squibb, WBENC and Planet Mogul distributed 1,000 backpacks to communities across the state of New Jersey, where Bristol Myers Squibb is headquartered. Backpacks were filled with Planet Mogul’s proprietary Moguls-In-Training Workbook, which weaves business, entrepreneurship, and industry-specific education into innovative/interactive activities that challenge and expand student thinking. In addition to the workbooks, backpacks also included colored pencils and healthy snacks to keep the students motivated and full.
