Marlboro High School
Business Administration offers a four-year program of study to students who wish to develop their interests in the areas of business and management. The program is focused through the study of targeted courses, which include finance, management, economics, law, and computer technology. Classroom activities are regularly augmented by guest lectures.
Students are encouraged to apply and practice the academic knowledge gained in the classroom through participation in various competitions sponsored by the Future Business Leaders of America and the Federal Reserve Bank. Some of these include the Euro Challenge , Fed Challenge , DECA , and FBLA , Team Ethics Challenge, and Consumer Bowl . In 2016, our students placed fourth in the nation in the national FBLA Accounting I and Accounting II competitions. In 2017, students finished second in the National FBLA Accounting II competition and finished first in the Team Ethics Challenge. Also in 2017, our students finished in the top 13 in the Tri-State Area Euro and Fed Challenges. These co-curricular activities, as well as other opportunities afforded by our close proximity to financial and corporate institutions in the greater metropolitan area, play an integral role in students' personal and academic growth. Students will be prepared to attend a college or university with a foundation secured in human relations skills, rigorous academic training, and an appreciation for both social and ethical responsibility.
While attending the Business Administration Magnet Program, students are well prepared for college entry standardized exams. The average SAT score of Business Administration students was 2003 in 2016, with an average of 731 in math and 666 in reading.
Business Administration Magnet Program students are regularly admitted to prestigious colleges and universities such as University of Pennsylvania Wharton School, Villanova, Princeton, Harvard, Columbia, Cornell, Duke, Carnegie Mellon, NYU, and many others.
