Year 11 Business Studies (11BUS)
Teacher in Charge: Mrs D. Reyneke
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. Students will develop a business in school and sell their product on a market day. Group work, work ethic and commitment are characteristics required by students.
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.
