Students understand technology at such an advanced level that often educators neglect to connect how
technology can supplement business initiatives. However, a solid business foundation in business
administration, economics, accounting, information technology, and educational theory and practice is
at the crux of any business teacher.
The Bachelor of Arts in business administration with business, computers and information technology
with K-12 certification also provides a solid foundation in the liberal arts so our graduates are prepared
for teaching positions in secondary schools.
Students in this major have the ability to work closely with faculty from both the education and business
The education program includes a substantial experiential component: classroom observation during
sophomore and junior year, and student teaching during senior year.
On the business side, students can participate in entrepreneurial and networking opportunities through
Enactus and can join the Business Club, which publishes a semi-annual newsletter and tours companies
to learn about business operations.
Students who graduate with certification and a minimum GPA of 3.5 may pursue a master’s degree in
IU’s Educational Leadership program during a fifth year of study.
Where Can I Work
Graduates of the business administration with business, computers and information technology (with K-
12 certification) will be well prepared for teaching roles within public and private educational
institutions as well as colleges, and as corporate trainers and tutors.
