Business and Finance Technology courses provide a solid educational foundation for all students. They learn to become knowledgeable and ethical decision-makers in their roles as consumers, workers, and citizens. They are introduced to the basics of personal finance, the economic principles of an increasingly international marketplace, and the processes by which businesses operate. In addition, these courses provide students with practical guidelines needed to manage their personal and professional lives. They challenge students to develop their creative thinking skills and to become independent learners. Students apply their business knowledge and technical skills by engaging in activities which require analysis, synthesis and evaluation. This prepares them to become astute business persons and citizens who are capable of making critical economic and/ or managerial decisions.
