HUMANITIES: BUSINESS STUDIES – Subject Type: Choice; Semester 1

Business Studies is a diverse subject that allows students to explore their own enterprising skills and the role of business in society.

Students complete initial activities to develop their understanding of the characteristics of an entrepreneur, the concepts of marketing, legal structure, sources of finance demand and supply and the role of business in society.

Students are required to create a business, either real or virtual, and explore the many concepts and decisions required to start a business. This may involve excursions to local business or completing a case study of a business of their choice.

At the conclusion of the semester, students have developed enterprising skills, organisation, time management skills, and the ability to research effectively and collate that research into a professional document for the purpose of their business.
