Get Started with MBA Research Resources and Services


Supporting High School and Post-Secondary Business Administration and Marketing Educators

MBA Research & Curriculum Center is a not-for-profit consortium. State departments of education pool their resources to efficiently develop business-based national standards and resources for business and marketing educators. This approach means that everything we develop is done for you based on direction received from you. The result is products, services, and support all available at a much lower price than could otherwise be offered.

Current Resources

Our Resources Are Always Current, So You Can Be, Too.

Ongoing, extensive research with business leaders nationwide results in learning standards and resources focused on the knowledge and skills students need in career and college.

Want To Give Our Resources a Try?

We’d suggest starting with one of our lesson modules (LAPs). These ready-to-use lesson plans are each based on a single performance indicator. Every LAP includes student narrative, activities, assessments, discussion guides, video links, and more. Select a LAP from our library of hundreds, or choose from over 70 available for free through our work with the Daniels Fund High School Ethics Initiative.
