Business Management & Administration Career Cluster®
The Academy of Finance at Como Park Senior High School in Saint Paul, MN was launched in 2014 in close collaboration with multiple educational and employer partners to prepare learners for careers in the field of finance. A robust advisory committee provides input on the skills and competencies learners need to succeed in today’s and tomorrow’s workforce and identify work-based learning opportunities to connect classroom learning to the workplace. A strong partnership with Saint Paul College is a key contributor to the design and implementation of the program. Learners can obtain up to 16 college credits and graduate high school with a business certificate from Saint Paul, helping them make a seamless transition to both postsecondary education and careers.
