Business Administration Students Participate in High School Fed Challenge

Marlboro High School Business Administration students recently traveled to New York City for the High School Fed Challenge. The competition, hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, is designed to bring real-world economics into the classroom. Teams play the role of monetary policymakers by analyzing economic conditions and recommending a course for monetary policy.  The team of students performed a 12-minute presentation on the economy and participated in a 13-minute Q&A with the judges. Judges are New York Fed economists and staff who are experts on economics and monetary policy. 

The Business Administration Magnet Program offers a four-year program of study to students who wish to develop their interests in the areas of business and management. The program is focused through the study of targeted courses, which include finance, management, economics, law, and computer technology. Classroom activities are regularly augmented by guest lectures. Business Administration Magnet Program students are regularly admitted to prestigious colleges and universities such as University of Pennsylvania Wharton School, Villanova, Princeton, Harvard, Columbia, Cornell, Duke, Carnegie Mellon, NYU, and many others.
