It is imperative that students graduate from high school with the knowledge and skills needed to effectively navigate the complex world in which they live. NJCU School of Business and the New Jersey Council for Economic Education at NJCU are contributing to this goal by offering the Master Teacher Certificate in Economics and Personal Finance. The NJCU Certificate program properly outfits teachers so that they can inspire students to become effective participants in the economy, successful entrepreneurs, responsible consumers and wise investors.
The Certificate is specifically designed for educators who have demonstrated leadership potential. These professionals put what they are learning in the program to immediate use in their own classrooms and greater educational communities. They are equipped with both a solid foundation in economic theory and a set of strategies and methods for teaching economics and personal finance. Not only do students benefit from NJCEE at NJCU resources but they are also immediately connected to a network of educators, from whom they can draw on-going inspiration and support.
Our graduates are master teachers who serve as agents of change in their own districts. Many serve student populations from New Jersey’s most economically vulnerable communities.
