Business Studies 301

In a rapidly changing world it is important that citizens are able to make informed and rational decisions about business matters. Business contributes to the development of an enterprising culture in New Zealand and supports our efforts to improve economic and community well-being. Studying business creates opportunities for students to:

  • understand the integral role of business in society and the economy
  • explore enterprise culture
  • further develop and foster qualities such as initiative, resilience, and resourcefulness, and skills such as problem solving, co-operation, decision making, negotiation, and communication
  • gain knowledge and understanding of good business practice and of business as a productive activity
  • acquire greater financial capability.
  • participate in the Young Enterprise Certificate run nationally throughout secondary schools in NZ and resourced by the Young Enterprise Trust.
