The Business Education Program is designed to prepare students for the kind of competitive business atmosphere prevalent in today’s work environment.
All business students are exposed to the 2007 Microsoft Office Suite, including Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint and Access. The goal is to enable our students to earn MOS (Microsoft Office Specialist) certification in these areas, providing future employers and educators with an important indicator of our students’ level of expertise.
In May 2002 MVHS became an official training center for the Microsoft Office Certification Program. Included in the Business Education Program are courses in general business theory, accounting, computer applications, office technology, and use of social networking for promoting business and networking with professionals. Coursework includes development of business plans and presentation of those plans to the class and visiting business people. Students participate in the Co-operative Education Program during their senior year by working in various business areas: insurance, law, nursing, and landscaping, to name a few.
