Business activity affects the daily lives of everyone as they work, spend, save, invest, travel, and play. To engage in the world of business, students need to understand the business dynamics of communities and organizations, assessing their needs and problems and how to generate solutions. Business Studies also provide students with a practical context for many other subjects they might choose, including Mathematics, Science and Technology, Languages, and Social Studies.
At The Institute of Education, the focus is on building a foundation for those who wish to move on to further study and training in specialised areas such as management, international business, marketing, accounting, information and communication technology, or entrepreneurship. We want to ensure that our students can leverage their acquired business knowledge in real life situations, so they learn about accountability, business with social responsibility, meeting deadlines and working under pressure, and doing everything with a dash of confidence and self-belief.
Our teachers have wide-ranging experience, including authoring text books, correcting exam papers, preparing mock exam papers and working as chief examiners for the State Examination Commission.
