Why We Should Be Teaching Business to High Schoolers
The business field is growing and is a sought after degree among young students. It is important that students have some knowledge of the business field before going into college. The business education degree at Grand Canyon University is the way to help high schoolers learn more about entrepreneurship.
What the Degree Consists of
This degree program equips students to obtain a business degree and also methodological and sociological courses necessary to teach grades 5-12. In this program, teachers learn about finance, ethical issues in business, educational psychology, adolescent development, class management and cognitive, linguistic, social, emotional and physical development. These are all of the skills and courses that are needed to obtain this degree.
Leading the Future
By teaching high schoolers about what it takes to make it in the business world and what is necessary to do so, we are teaching them the information they will need to help them to decide what they are going to do with their future. If it is something that they love, then we can give them those first steps to take and give them insight on what to do next. If they decide it is not for them, we can still give them the basics necessary for everyday life, no matter what path they choose to take.
High schoolers hardly know what they want to major in when they are getting ready to go to college. If we start teaching them these entrepreneurship skills in high school, they will have a better understanding of the path they want to take their education. We are leading them in helping them find their passion. By teaching them these skills we are helping our future.
If we teach these students these skills we are helping lead our future, because these students will be future business owners, entrepreneurs and innovators.
