Business Studies

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.

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.
The knowledge and skills gained in business studies, and exposure to enterprise culture, can help shape “creative, energetic, and enterprising” young people who will contribute to New Zealand’s economic future.

In Business Studies, students develop their understanding of business theory and practices in a range of relevant contexts, through experiential as well as theoretical approaches to learning.
