This 39-semester-hour program is intended to prepare persons to serve as school business managers. Students, under the direction of an advisor, will plan a program of studies which will include coursework, internship and field experiences directly related to the school business management functions in elementary, secondary or college educational systems.
It is not necessary to have a teaching certificate to apply for this program. A student who completes the Master's of Science in Education degree in School Business Management will satisfy the educational requirements for the Chief School Business Official endorsement to the Professional Educator License. Program flexibility permits elective courses which may be applied toward meeting minimal educational requirements for the general administrative endorsement.
The deadline to submit your application is April 1 for Summer (online) start. This program only admits students one time per year.
