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! 


This blog will be used for Level I, Level II and Level III Business Classes.

1st Level Students: Your information will be posted DIRECTLY onto this page.

2nd and 3rd Level  Students:  You will want to click in the main menu bar (upper right side of screen) on Business II or Business III to access information for your class


For all business students, you should check the BLOG at the beginning of the week. I try and post my plans for the week by Monday morning. I will use this blog to post PowerPoints from class notes and to remind you of upcoming projects and assessments.
