Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA)

Future Business Leaders of America is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) education association focused on careers in business and business-related fields.

Mission and Students

FBLA’s mission is to inspire and prepare students to become community-minded business leaders in a global society through relevant career preparation and leadership experiences. Student members are challenged to support the mission through the ideals of service, education, and progress. The association has three divisions serving middle school, high school, and college students, as well as an alumni network.


Educators serving as advisers guide local chapters. State advisers and state chairs coordinate chapter activities in each state or territory with the national organization. FBLA is led by a national board of directors that is comprised of educators, state leaders, representatives from business and industry, and the student division presidents. Student members, local advisers, and state leaders are supported by our professional staff headquartered in Reston, Virginia, located near Washington, D.C.
