Each Metro Academy is a learning community made up of two linked courses each semester, pairing a general education course (such as English or math) with a discipline-specific course (e.g., health, science, ethnic studies, child development). Metro gives students personalized support for college success through in-class academic support and tutoring. Every Metro addresses real-world issues and brings social justice into the classroom. Although you can continue on into any major after you complete Metro, read about the different themes to find a Metro academy that best matches your interests!
Business is a vast professional field, with applications ranging from the mom-and-pop corner store to the global corporation. While historical and contemporary business models and practices have brought innumerable improvements to humankind and our natural and built environments, our market system has resulted in the uneven distribution of benefits and burdens. However, business education has the capacity to prepare students for meaningful careers in which they bring core values of diversity, equity, and responsible leadership to their work, their organizations, and their communities in order to address these disparities. The Metro Academy of Business begins the work of bringing together an interest in business careers and a commitment to social justice.
