Many people—parents, students, and even educators—operate under the erroneous assumption that business education is only for students who expect to graduate and pursue a career in business. The information contained within the business education curriculum is not only valuable for all students in today’s world, but also it is critical for the success of our country. All students need to have a general
understanding of how the American economy operates and the role business plays in the economic well-being of the country. Furthermore, it is increasingly necessary for students to be able to understand and utilize technology in their personal and professional lives.
The Harvard Business Education Department’s purpose is to provide students with the opportunities to explore the world of business, both financial and technical. It is our mission to serve the total school population through a relevant curriculum oriented toward providing career direction, a sound foundation for advanced study, and the development of employability job skills. We want students to become life-long learners and knowledgeable contributors within the ever-changing global society in which we live.
Students beginning with the class of 2013 will be required to take ½ credit in the Business Department in addition to the state requirement of Consumer Economics.
