• Business / Finance & Computer Science Pathways

    The Career Technical Education Business and Finance Pathways is for students interested in being trained in fields such as business management, international trade, and various financial services specialties (e.g., accounting, banking, and investing). Students will find that their skills are highly marketable. Students master basic business principles and procedures before proceeding to the career path specializations. The specializations emphasize concepts of accounting and finance, including computer applications, taxes, investments, and asset management as well as pathways in international business and business management. Because almost every business and organization has a financial and management component, students will find that opportunities exist in many career paths in addition to those in business and finance.
