In today’s global economy, it is important that all students have knowledge of the economic and financial world in which they live. Business Education provides students with the foundation to pursue programs such as business administration, accounting, marketing/management, law and finance. Many business courses provide students with the opportunity to develop computer skills necessary to be competitive in both college and the workplace. Course clusters group the various electives that would apply to specific areas of interest. Students may elect to take courses from a variety of course clusters if they wish to explore various fields or remain within a cluster if they prefer a strong preparation for specific post high school study.
Shaker High School’s Business program consists of 19 elective courses to choose from, with a NYS Education Department approved program in Business Administration. Students who complete a specific five unit sequence will get a “Business Administration” endorsement on their diploma.
