Program History

As a leading researcher and resource developer of marketing and business curricula, MBA Research makes it a priority to keep up-to-date in its industry.  Through daily interaction with educators, administrators and marketing and business professionals, a theme began to emerge.  Many high school students who planned to major in business or marketing in college were not adding high school business and marketing courses to their schedules.  Further research determined that many schools did not have the accelerated curriculum in place to challenge and prepare these college-bound students.  And so an idea began.  How can high schools better prepare the large number of future college business administration and marketing majors that they serve?

In early 2007, five high schools from five different states paved the way for the High School of Business™ program.  As the pilot sites, this special group offers continuous feedback on all aspects of the program, including professional development, curriculum, and program design.  

High School of Business™ continues to grow.  For more information on applying, see Getting Started.
