August 1 – August 3

Welcome to Business Education!

Guess what? You made a good choice! Do you realize that of the 1,869,814 bachelor’s degrees conferred last year, the greatest numbers of degrees were conferred in the field 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!
