Business Studies is a dynamic and immersive program, designed to teach students about the world of business. Through a wide range of individual and collaborative assessments, we examine the motivations and challenges faced by a combination of local and world leading New Zealand businesses.
Students will get the opportunity to study marketing strategy, motivation management, what businesses look for when hiring new workers, the importance of innovation to New Zealand, and the external pressures faced by businesses and how this affects decision making.
Business Studies, as a programme across the full three years, is a programme that slowly strives to develop self-management and independent learning skills, which are hugely important for life beyond school.
Whether or not students go onto study Business at a higher level or not, students should expect to leave the course better prepared for employment, having gained greater insight from the world of Business, and having been pushed over time to develop skills required in employment.
