Career Areas

Students at Destinations Career Academy of Nevada (Destinations) gain exposure to relevant technical and specialty trade skills from Career Technical Education (CTE) courses built around three career areas, allowing them to explore occupations of interest. These engaging, content-rich courses expand the traditional education experience and maximize a student's ability to succeed in the community and workforce. Successful completion of these courses may help students prepare for industry certification tests after graduation.*

CTE courses are based on the knowledge and skills required for each career pathway in the following career areas:

  • Business Management and Administration: Careers in planning, organizing, directing, and evaluating business functions essential to efficient and productive business operations. Learn more about Business Management and Administration.
  • Finance: Careers in recording, classifying, summarizing, analyzing, and communicating financial information/transactions, managing and implementing capital structure, budgeting, acquisition and investment, financial modeling and planning, funding, dividends, and taxation decision-making. Learn more about Finance.
  • Marketing: Careers in planning, directing, and providing marketing communications, strategy, advertising, promotion, and public relations activities. Learn more about Marketing.

*In some programs it may be necessary for students to attend Destinations for at least two years to have enough exposure to Career Technical Education (CTE) courses to be best prepared for certification testing. Microsoft Office certifications may be earned as early as after one semester.
