BEIT Curriculum

Business Education

Business Education majors fulfill the same core requirements as all other College of Business majors. In addition, BE majors gain knowledge of teaching through courses and field experiences in the College of Education and the BEIT program area. Students in the BE major are given extensive preparation in using computer technology focused on meeting education and business needs. Graduates who pursue a business teaching career have the opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of students.

Full information can be found in the Business Education Major Undergraduate Catalog.

Transition to Teaching

The Indiana State University Transition to Teaching program (T2T) provides individuals who possess a bachelor's degree in business from an accredited institution of higher learning the opportunity to earn licensure certification to teach middle school and high school business courses in the state of Indiana.

The teacher of /business/technology must understand the basics of:

  • Accounting
  • Business law
  • Micro and macroeconomics
  • Entrepreneurship
  • International business
  • Management
  • Marketing
  • Finance
  • Business communication
  • Consumer economics
  • Information technology
    • Word processing
    • Spreadsheet
    • Database
    • Presentation

  • Touch keyboarding

In the interview with the Business Education Program Coordinator, you will be asked to demonstrate your skill at keyboarding by touch. You should be capable of touch-typing at a minimum of 25 words per minute on a five-minute timing with five or fewer errors. (If you currently do not possess the skill to meet this standard, you are advised to enroll in a class that will provide you with this capability before entering the program. These classes are available though local community colleges and business schools.)

If you have any questions regarding these College of Business requirements, you may contact the Business Education, Information, and Technology Program Interim Chair, Dr. Aruna Chandra.
