Business, Management, Marketing, and Technology Education
Why Choose Business, Management, Marketing, and Technical Education?
The Business, Management, Marketing, and Technology (BMMT) program prepares students to teach subjects at the secondary and vocational level. The BMMT teacher:
- Recognizes/recalls the existence of different aspects of business, management, marketing, and technology and related teaching strategies.
- Articulates knowledge about business, management, marketing, and technology and related instructional and assessment strategies.
- Demonstrates proficiency in using the knowledge at a fundamental level of competence acceptable for teaching.
- Applies broad, in-depth knowledge of the different aspects of business, management, marketing, and technology in a variety of settings.
- Offers a balanced educational background including business professional education and general education courses, field and directed teaching experiences.
The Business, Management, Marketing and Technology education program prepares students to teach business subjects at the secondary and vocational level, as well as the multifaceted world of government, business, and industry. Business education students select a major in general business or marketing and a teaching minor is required. You cannot have a general business teaching minor with this teaching major.
Students seeking admission to teacher education programs must have 2.5 (on a 4.0 scale) or an ACT composite score of 17 or 900 SAT. Students transferring into the program with completed majors or minors must have the appropriate GPA as established by each department.
