Business on Resume!!!

SO I am a sophomore planning to major in business and/or computer science in college. I'm not 100% sure what college I want to attend so far, but would OBVIOUSLY love to go to an university with a great business school and fun environment. I just wanted to ask how a business-focused resume for a high school student might look? Ive seen plenty of student resumes with science-based classes and awards, but have never seen one based on business. What might one do that would help in getting admitted to a good business college? I am currently doing DECA, but I feel as if I need to do more than just that to appeal to a business school. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    Hello, I am having same problems with you. Does DECA have a good reputation? I looked up the DECA's website, but I am still confused what is it for.

    DECA/FBLA are well known in admissions.

    But as far as a business resume in general, there isn't a magic formula. I would say you want to show passion in your pursuits, but above all they're looking for demonstrated leadership in your activities. Seek out board positions, aim to lead your organization, etc. Also, most business programs will also look for high marks on quant classes, SAT Math II, and Calc BC.
