Business Studies

What will I learn?

Business Studies offers you the opportunity to gain skills, knowledge and understanding required to run your own business activity.

Each semester you will have the opportunity to start up a brand new business by:

  • Working with other students to form a company.

  • Conducting a market survey

  • Creating a product and taking it to market.

  • Planning the different aspects of running a business.

  • Selling your product to customers during an online Market Day.

  • Keeping whatever profit your business makes.

  • Using learning in subjects such as Technology, Music, Art, Food or Media to create your product.

  • Business Investments-Students in business groups will need to determine how much they wish to invest in their business activities. A guide on the level of investment is $100 (Approximately $25 per student in a group of 4). This investment should cover set-up costs of product, product research, product design, stall hire, display of the product e.g. table cloth, banners.
