The primary role of the West Essex Business Department is to offer a curriculum designed to develop financial and economic literacy; technological and problem-solving ability, and creativity through problem-based learning and authentic challenging tasks to prepare students to successfully compete in the global marketplace. The curriculum strives to reflect emerging technologies that will enable students to research, evaluate, interpret and utilize data successfully. The curriculum also promotes problem-solving and team-building skills, as well as business ethics and time management strategies. Students will gain a strong foundation in the theories and functional areas of business.

We believe that a quality Business Education Program at West Essex is one that encompasses The New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards for Business Education. These standards are based on a vision and set of competencies designed to prepare students to become knowledgeable and ethical decision makers as they fulfill their roles as consumers, workers, and citizens.
