Student teaching is considered to be the most critical event and capstone experience of teacher preparation programs. However, within the discipline of business education, very few studies have investigated the challenges and issues of developing future business teachers within the student teaching internship. This study examined the perspectives of an expert panel of 31 business education university supervisors from the U.S. and Canada using a modified Delphi approach. Findings indicated business education student teachers are most prepared in the areas of content knowledge, instructional planning, and technology integration. However, business education student teachers are most unprepared in the area of classroom management. The university supervisors also articulated initiatives business teacher education programs could implement to enhance the preparation of their future teachers.
