Why Business?

The knowledge and skills gained in business studies, and exposure to enterprise culture, can help shape “creative, energetic, and enterprising” young people who will contribute to New Zealand’s economic future.

The study of Business is about how individuals and groups of people organize, plan, and act to create and develop goods and services to satisfy customers.

Business is influenced by and impacts on cultural, ethical, environmental, political, and economic conditions of the day. Issues such as sustainability, citizenship, enterprise, and globalization are central to both business and the study of business.
