Step into the world of business with our Business Management Pathway!

At GLA you'll have the opportunity to participate in our Business Management Pathway which will help you build an entrepreneurial mindset and develop the skills and knowledge to build and manage your own businesses. Hands-on projects provide real-world experiences in leadership, digital marketing, customer relationships, and small business management.

As members of the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), you'll gain access to a network of peers and business professionals. The annual State FBLA conference in Denver, where you'll be able to compete for a chance to attend Nationals, is not just an event; it’s a milestone where GLA’s student leaders showcase their business prowess.
