Located within the College of Education and Professional Studies, the Business and Marketing Education program of University of Wisconsin - Whitewater will help prepare students for careers in teaching business and marketing subjects. The program is the oldest continuous Business Education program in the United States, in existence since 1913. Students graduate with a Bachelor's of Science and Education (BSE) degree.

Business and marketing education majors acquire subject matter knowledge in all areas of the business curriculum, including information technology, marketing, accounting, personal finance, business law, and general business. Also included is the career and technical education certification, Vocational Business Education (DPI License 281).

This program meets the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction's PI-34 certification requirements for the teaching license at the K-12 level. Specialized courses and field experiences specifically prepare business and marketing education majors for the challenging but rewarding career of teaching. Graduates will be able to teach business subjects at any level in the k-12 system.

Student Teaching and Work Experience

All students seeking K-12 licensure are required to complete one semester of student teaching in a high school. As an alternative to student teaching, a few school districts offer paid internships to students who are eligible to student teach. The internship replaces the student teaching experience, and applicants must be eligible to apply. 

For related work experience, business and marketing pre-service and in-service teachers are encouraged to work in business to upgrade their business experience that will enhance classroom instruction. These and other related work hours can be applied to the career and technical education license requirement. The department offers a course that allows students to earn three hours for each hour worked; these hours may then be applied to their requirements for Department of Public Instruction (DPI) vocational licensure.
