Business & Marketing
Every job and career deals with providing a good or service to satisfy people’s needs and wants; therefore, every job that every student pursues is a business. Boulder High School’s business classes complement any and every career path or interest. Additionally, it is important to keep in mind that the number one college major for both men and women is Business.
Boulder High School offers comprehensive college-oriented business classes, which allow students the opportunity to begin evaluating a potential career in business or the selection of Business as a major or minor in college. Students are encouraged to join Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) and compete in business competitions at the district, state, and national levels. View the BHS Career Club Website for more information on FBLA.
