Concordia University Chicago provides a specialization in school business management with and without an Illinois Chief School Business Official (CSBO) Management endorsement. The information below is only for candidates who do not already have a graduate degree. (If you have a graduate degree, please click here to be directed to the appropriate program in the Department of Leadership.)
By pursuing a CSBO, you will gain a solid foundation in school business administration. You will acquire skills in budgeting, facilities management, human resources, public relations, and legal issues that are required to be a successful administrator. Included in the curriculum are six hours of clinical experience as required by the State of Illinois to be eligible for the CSBO endorsement.
In order to obtain a CSBO endorsement students will be required to show evidence that they have taken and passed both the Test of Academic Proficiency (TAP) and the CSBO content test #185.
