DHS Academy of Finance Businesses

Since 1999, the DHS Academy of Finance has exposed 11th and 12th grade students to many facets of business to prepare them for the increasingly competitive workplace. Think of it as a “mini” MBA where students take courses in corporate finance, marketing, entrepreneurship, personal finance, AP macroeconomics and international business. The two-year program includes an emphasis on group projects, team competitions, and interaction with local business leaders that sharpen the students’ networking skills. The program also challenges students to work in groups to form legitimate businesses.  

If you have any questions about the program, please email Steve Fortenberry, Laura Lampron, or Donald R. Keen.
