The business studies curriculum examines the multifaceted functions and operations of businesses, from small businesses to multinational enterprises. These businesses drive the economy, influence the standard of living and the nature and number of jobs, and play a role in the career decisions of many secondary school students. Students are motivated and learn best when they understand the relevance of what they are studying.The business studies program provides rich opportunities for relevant, real-world learning experiences.These experiences reinforce theoretical learning and at the same time provide authentic contexts in which students can apply what they have learned. In business studies, programs that provide pathways to specific apprenticeship and workplace destinations and that include cooperative education courses provide students with valuable information and connections that help them to explore potential work and business opportunities.
