Business Studies is all about how businesses work in theory and in practice.
This year learners will create, plan and run their own business during a one-off Market Day here at Whangaparāoa College. Learners will study the internal features of a small business and see how these same features relate to a larger business when they complete a trip to Rainbows End toward the end of the year.
- Apply the marketing mix to a new or existing product
- Carry out and review a product-based business activity within a classroom context with direction
