Wanted: Business Leaders

If the economy is growing, then so is the need for business professionals. Every industry, every company, every school, every government agency, and every nonprofit needs managers, financial experts, CEOs, and marketers. Though this sounds obvious, it is important to make sure that it isn't being overlooked as your district conducts its Perkins Local Needs Assessment.

Just Updated! Cost-Benefit Analysis

Opportunity cost is what an individual or a business could miss out on when making a change. Weighing the opportunity cost—whether it is buying a new piece of equipment or making a career change—is an integral part of conducting a cost-benefit analysis. Click here to get a snippet about our latest LAP Running the Numbers (Cost-Benefit Analysis) and help your students learn why and how businesses conduct cost-benefit analyses when making important decisions.

This 2020 edition LAP (referenced as LAP-FI-357) is available in the Learning Center today.

Ready-To-Use Classroom Resource

Use The Gray Zone ethical dilemmas to introduce your students to problems and situations that don’t have one specific right or wrong answer. This week’s Gray Zone topic: Effective Communication.

This Gray Zone comes from the More Than Just Talk lesson module (LAP) and aligns to performance indicator EI:007 Explain the nature of effective communications.

Learning Center LMS

Did you know? A subscription to the MBA Learning Center costs less than a textbook and may be shared (with separate logins) by up to five different teachers within the same school building. A full 12-month subscription for five teachers is just $695 (for member states) or $995 (for non-member states). 5-year pricing is available.

"I use the MBA Learning Center in all aspects of my teaching. I use it to introduce the material to the students, I use it to assess the students, I use it to give the students a little bit of variety, and I use it to differentiate the different levels of my classroom."
