• Business Management              ______________________bm

    Grades 9-12 



    This course gives students a solid foundation of the business world. We first learn about what the primary functions of a business are, the effects of globalization, and the importance of effectiveness and efficiency.


    Then students will be taught a strong understanding of the US's Economic Philosophy and Government Structure and how ours compares with various other country's Government Structures and Economic Philosophies. Students then learn the tools the Federal Reserve Bank uses to strengthen our economy. A current economic look of our country is discussed.



    Finally, students learn about the different types of businesses, including proprietorships, partnerships, and various forms of corporations.



    Working in groups of two, students will be required to write a Business Plan to open a Partnership, create a PowerPoint of their Partnership, and present it to the class.
