Business activity affects the daily lives of all Canadians as they work, spend, save, invest, travel, and play. It influences jobs, incomes, and opportunities for personal enterprise. Business has a significant effect on the standard of living and quality of life of Canadians, and on the environment in which they live and which future generations will inherit. Eventually, all students will encounter the world of business, whether they work in urban or rural areas. They must be prepared to engage in business activity with confidence and competence. All people need to understand how business functions, the role it plays in our society, the opportunities it generates, the skills it requires, and the impact it can have on their own lives and on society, today and in the future.
The Business Studies program will build a strong foundation for those who wish to move on to further study and training in specialized areas such as management, international business, marketing, accounting, information and communication technology, personal finance or entrepreneurship. It will also provide practical skills for those who wish to move directly into the workplace.
Classes in Business are dynamic, with interactive and creative projects, computer use, guest speakers, and field trips. Relevant real world examples are used throughout all classes. (Taken from the Ontario Curriculum)
