A natural curiosity and desire to learn about the mechanics of business will be essential. During this course we will be studying ethical business choices, problem solving through critical analysis and understanding how entrepreneurial approaches can help to solve the needs and wants of modern society. We will be investigating the global strategies of multinational corporations and the importance of careful financial management.
