CoinsEconomics and Business Educators NSW exists to support teachers and students of business studies, commerce, economics and legal studies.

The association is managed by a diverse board of directors consisting of educators from government, Catholic, Christian, Muslim and independent schools, the Board of Studies NSW and University of Sydney.

Believing that effective professional development is clearly linked to the improvement of student learning outcomes, EBE conducts a number of PD events each year. In 2012 the Business Educators Australasia National Conference will be hosted by EBE in Sydney on October 4 and 5.

EBE acts as a voice for its members, making significant contributions to the development of education policies and offering subject specific perspectives to relevant authorities. EBE NSW is contributing to the development of the Business and Economics learning areas in the Australian Curriculum.

EBE publishes numerous resources to support teachers in providing high quality lessons, including the EBE Journal and annual trial HSC examinations. Visit for more.
