    • Finance
    • Business Administration
    • Management Information¬†Systems
    • Digital Communication & Design
    • Management, Marketing & Communication
    • Health Administration

The goal of the program is to provide all business students the opportunity to demonstrate workplace skills learned through business education curricula. Students will:

  • demonstrate occupational competencies;

  • broaden knowledge, skills, and attitudes;

  • expand leadership and human relation skills;

  • demonstrate a competitive spirit; and

  • receive recognition.

    Students may enter enter two events, only one of which may be a team event. Postsecondary students may enter three events, only one of which may be a team event. A student may enter an unlimited number of open events. Students do not need to pre-qualify for open events to compete at the state or national leadership conferences.

    • Secondary (high school)
    • Associate (high school students who meet criteria and qualify for special populations)
    • Middle Level (middle school 6-8 grade)
    • Post-Secondary (college or university)
    • Virtual (available for any member who does not have access to a chapter at their school)

    As a premier business business organization, we take pride in educating our members on creating a professional image and demonstrating proper behavior. Therefore, we have adopted a dress code and delegate code of conduct for members to follow while attending all of our conferences, events, and activities.
