NCEA Level 1 Business Studies

01BUS
Course Description

Teacher in Charge:

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 upon 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.

The knowledge and skills gained in Business Studies, and exposure to enterprise culture, can help shape “creative, energetic and enterprising” young people who will contribute to New Zealand’s economic future. In Business Studies we will develop your understanding of business theory and practices in a range of relevant contexts, through experiential as well as theoretical approaches to learning.
