Whether your school is urban or rural, public or private, large, medium, or small, High School of Business engages and challenges students with accelerated, hands-on business projects.

1. Explore the Program

2. Plan for Your Program

    • Determine your program of study. Will you offer only the required courses, or add on optionals?
    • Estimate expenses (see Handbook, Appendix C) and understand training requirements.
    • Identify key stakeholders. A Primary Contact is the main point of contact between MBA Research and the school district; a Primary Administrator (usually a Principal, Assistant Principal, or CTE Director) champions the program at the administration level. Participating teachers should be eager to facilitate the project-based learning of accelerated business concepts.
