The CEEE, affiliated with the Delaware Council on Economic Education, exponentially broadens its influence through its unique advanced degree program. Nowhere else can teachers earn a Master of Arts in Economics & Entrepreneurship for Educators, a distinction that leaves graduates well-positioned to become change agents in their own school districts, states and countries.
