NCEA Level 2 Business Studies
Teacher in Charge: C. Bedward
The aim of Level 2 NCEA Business Studies is for students to develop their understanding of business theory and practices in a range of relevant contexts, through experiential as well as theoretical approaches to learning. Students will learn how individuals and groups of people use market research to organise, plan, create and develop goods and services to satisfy customers needs. At this level, students will experience how their own business is influenced by the cultural, ethical, environmental, political, and economic conditions of the day by taking a product to market for 2 separate selling cycles. They will be able to produce cash flow forecasts, as well as identify and make the necessary changes to expenditure to maintain a cash surplus. The knowledge and skills gained in business studies, and exposure to enterprise culture, will help shape “creative, energetic, and enterprising” young people who will contribute to New Zealand’s economic future.
