NBEA developed this fifth edition of the National Standards for Business Education. The standards, first published in 1995 at the request of business educators throughout the country, was then, and is today, at the leading edge of business and career education. Preparing students for the workplace demands a dynamic curriculum—perhaps more dynamic than any other academic discipline. The workplace undergoes constant change. Tomorrow’s challenges cannot be met using yesterday’s skills. Numerous business educators and business professionals volunteered their time and expertise to review and revise these standards for what students should know and be able to do in business. These educators, who represent their colleagues at all instructional levels, believe strongly in the importance of the standards and consider them a major contribution to the improvement of both personal and career directed education. The National Standards for Business Education are based on a comprehensive curriculum model that integrates ten content areas including: accounting business law, career development communication, economics/personal finance, entrepreneurship, information technology, international business, management, and marketing.

There are two ways to enjoy the standard.
