Marketing Education is a cooperative arrangement between the school and employers whereby students receive classroom instruction and on-the-job training in a marketing occupation. These two experiences must be planned and supervised by the school and employers so that each contributes to the student's education and employability. Each student is employed an average of fifteen hours a week. This course is combined with Entrepreneurship to provide an entire school year of instruction.
Entrepreneurship is designed to train students in what it takes to start a small business.
