Manheim Township Business Education

The High School Business Program offers a variety of opportunities for students to explore careers and fields they may wish to pursue in the future.    The department offers instruction in Accounting, Marketing, Sports Entertainment, Entrepreneurship, and Financial Literacy.  Many students also “cap-off” their high school career by completing an internship during their senior year.

Students engage in hands-on business activities in all of their courses.  The Entrepreneurship students perform all the roles necessary to run the Bluetique (MT’s School Store) and utilize the Accounting and Marketing students to help complete the tasks of running a business.  The Sports Entertainment students work with the Lancaster Barnstormers and The Wells Fargo Center (Philadelphia) to get hands-on experience!  Financial Literacy students regularly participate in various simulations involving finances and work with curricular materials developed by Susquehanna Bank.
