Welcome to Business Education!
Guess what? You made a good choice! Do you realize that of the 1,869,814 bachelor’s degrees conferred in 2013 – 2014, the greatest numbers of degrees were conferred in the fields of business (358,079) (per the National Center for Education Statistics). Business and Technology is a class that will benefit you in so many ways…… no matter your choice of college major or career field. 70% of high school students say they want to own their own business and 73% of new jobs in the next five years will require technology skills. 91% of hiring managers consider employee certification as a criterion for hiring! You are going to leave this class with Microsoft Certification!
