All of MBA Research research data, along with the Consortium’s entire range of services, are available to all Career-Tech student organizations (CTSO) serving Business Administration students. FBLA/PBL is a sponsor of the national Business Administration standards that are available free of charge to all local and state programs.
Representatives of FBLA/PBL serve on the task force that guides the MBA Research National High School Business Administration Accreditation program. This initiative is designed to recognize exemplary Business Administration programs that incorporate best practice, including the use of student organizations such as FBLA/PBL for leadership development and student recognition.
MBA Research and FBLA/PBL partner in a variety of other ways, including reciprocal sponsorships: MBA Research is an active sponsor of the FBLA economics event (nationally). FBLA/PBL has for some years sponsored the closing keynote at the annual MBA Conclave Curriculum and Teaching Conference.
MBA Research instructional tools, particularly LAP modules and the MBA Learning Center (online), provide strong support for students preparing to compete in FBLA/PBL competitive events, with the exception of those focused solely on technology.
Additional work is underway to support FBLA/PBL advisers’ efforts to prepare students for competitive events. Watch for announcements via Perspectives newsletter and on this site.
NOTE: All FBLA/PBL advisers in member states are eligible for member pricing on all products and services. MBA Research representatives are frequent exhibitors at the national FBLA conference.
