Business Education Emphasis


The Department of Management, Marketing and General Business works with the Department of Education to provide course work leading to a general business major with secondary teacher certification. By combining requirements for courses in the general business major with courses required for education certification, students will be prepared to teach in the business education curriculum as established by the State Board of Education Certification. Students will need to consult the appropriate adviser in the Department of Education to ensure that courses selected will meet major and certification requirements.
