Master of Science in Business Education
Why Get a Master’s in Business Education at ESU?
The facts speak for themselves: Bankruptcy and home mortgage foreclosures have skyrocketed. How can middle and secondary school students learn early to manage their personal finances and be on solid financial footing as adults? They need the most up-to-date business knowledge, and those with a master’s in business education from ESU can give them that knowledge.
With a master’s in business education, you will update your business knowledge and computer skills; be re-licensed as a teacher; expand on the business knowledge you learned as an undergraduate; be prepared to be a leader in your school; enhance your professional competency in instruction, curriculum development and assessment; and be prepared to teach at the community college level.
