Marquette High School provides a robust selection of business, finance and technology programs, both at the micro and macro levels of business education. With an emphasis on both technical and employability skills, students who enroll in these classes will be well prepared for the rigors of similar college programs and careers in business.

The business class features business simulations and real-world applications and covers everything from business basics and being a savvy consumer to the development of actual entrepreneurial business plans. Students are exposed to everything from basic word processing, Microsoft Office applications and Google Apps to advanced web design, interactive graphics and media production.


Business, finance and technology courses should be part of the curriculum for every high school student, helping young adults manage their own financial affairs and make intelligent consumer and business-related choices in the global marketplace.
