    Who We Are

    We’re a not-for-profit curriculum research center focused on helping students find success in the business world. We are made up of a not-for-profit consortium of 29 state education departments.  Our work supports the leadership development, ethical decision-making, career transition processes and core work-ready skills needed by all students.  All of our materials are research-based, developed with specific input from hundreds of executives and managers in the business community.  Learn more about us.

    What We Offer:

    • Free Learning Materials:  Many of our materials have been underwritten by the Daniels Fund, a Colorado-based foundation.  Of particular interest to FCS programs is our collection of instructional modules (research-based comprehensive lesson plans we call LAPs) and our online MBA Learning Center (not free, but available at a deeply discounted price thanks to our Daniels Fund grant). The Learning Center may be shared by up to five teachers at no additional cost; be sure to check with your business and marketing program for ways to make your budget stretch further.
    • Badges, Certifications, and Proof: Both you and your students benefit if learning is documented and recorded.  We offer a wide range of assessments, digital badges, and certifications (including one on ethical leadership).  Learn more.
