Prepared for immediate employment, advanced certifications, and further education
Negaunee High School has two CTE programs in the Business Department including:
Business Administration, Management and Operations (BAMO)
The strong emphasis on technical and employability skills in these programs prepares students for the rigors of college and careers in business. Students are offered two full-year accounting classes and a variety of business and information technology courses, both at the micro and macro levels of business education during their high school careers.
Financial programs range from personal finance and money management to corporate accounting with an emphasis on the use of the technology and computerized accounting to analyze financial data. Courses expose students to everything from basic word processing, Microsoft Office applications and Google Apps to advanced web design, interactive graphics and media production. Business simulations are also used to give students a hands-on approach to apply what they’re learning toward running a virtual business in a marketplace against their classmates.
Finance, business and information technology courses should be part of the curriculum for every high school student, helping young adults manage their own financial affairs and make intelligent consumer and business-related choices in the global marketplace.
This class is typically available to students in grades 10-12.
“We learn all kinds of things like managing our personal finance. It’s one of the more important classes I’ve taken. I’ll definitely use it in my future!”

“There’s a lot more into accounting than just putting numbers into a book. It made me be more conscious with how much money I spend on everything and knowing to save it, and that I want to pay stuff back, so I don’t have to pay the extra interest on stuff.”
Brandon R., Negaunee HS Business and Finance Student
“It’s really more of a real world finance class. It’s a great class to get students prepared for the real world.”
