Business Studies is a course for students who want a hands-on experience running their own business.

As a business they will complete market research, a business plan, budgets and forecasts, marketing production and partake in two market days.
The course will also cover motivation theorist and how these apply to employees/employers and how to best increase production and profit for the business through these principles.
The external exam is based on a case study trip to Kaikoura Whale Watch and Waipara Springs Winery where students will learn a range of internal operations such as the production process, the use of financial information, corporate social responsibility aspects, organisational structure and policy and procedures.
