History

Welcome to the U. S. chapter of the International Society of Business Educators (ISBE), associated with SIEC - La Societe Internationale pour l'Enseignement Commercial.

The international organization was formed in Zurich, Switzerland in 1901 and, today, is a global network of business educators working together with businesses and educational institutions to provide outstanding business education opportunities for students of all ages.

ISBE USA is the premier professional association for US-based business educators, providing opportunities to network nationwide and globally, to research and share resources to publish, mentor, and grow.

SIEC-ISBE is the premiere global professional association for business educators. The US chapter was chartered in 1947 and has a rich history of providing unparalleled professional development and networking opportunities to members. The US chapter contracted years ago with another nonprofit organization to manage administrative tasks, and that arrangement ended December 31, 2020.

The new, revitalized US chapter launched Jan 1, 2021 under the name SIEC-USA, offering significantly reduced membership dues, expanded national and international benefits, and improved communications and networking. We remain dedicated to professional development and networking, supporting the vital link between business and business educators nationally and around the world.

SIEC-USA remains the premiere national professional association or business educators in the US, joining a global network of professionals in SIEC-ISBE.

We invite you to learn more and join us.
