Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr P. Cowley

The standards offered in this course may be altered at the discretion of the Head of Department.

The study of business is about how individuals and groups of people organise, plan, and act to create and develop goods and services to satisfy customers. Business is influenced by and impacts on the cultural, ethical, environmental, political, and economic conditions of the day. Issues such as sustainability, citizenship, enterprise, and globalisation are central to both business and the study of business. By completing this course successfully students will gain knowledge, skills, and experience to:
• Understand how, as a result of internal and external factors, small business owners make operational decisions that have consequences for the success of their business.
• Plan, carry out, and then review a one-off business activity, basing recommendations for the future on market feedback.
