Hi, I'm a little late in responding to this (over a month after the fact), but I've gone through exactly what you're talking about in my BS and MBA and I'm still a business student of sorts (MS CIS).

To make good presentations I rely on good overheads and other visuals that help to keep me on track and take some of the pressure off since the presentation isn't 100% me speaking. If using MS Powerpoint is an option in your classes that you aren't using it sure makes life a lot easier. Put enough details in to keep you on track, but not so much that you're basically reading 100% of your talk off the slides. If a good portion of your talk is directly off the slides, break them down into small chunks and dont' spend all day on one slide crammed with information. Just say enough to get the point across and don't worry about filling time with fluff.

Using a camcorder to record your presentation before hand is a wonderful way to practice since it really shows off how you come across to others.

And most importantly, hang in there!
