Any Level 1 Commerce course would be an advantage. Exclusions A student can take only Business & Enterprise OR Agribusiness. Unless approved by the Assistant Principal – Curriculum. Description Year 13 Business & Enterprise is an applied Business course. As part of the programme, students will work in groups to develop, plan and carry out an innovative and sustainable business idea. As part of this, they will also enter the YES (Young Enterprise Scheme) programme and compete with other schools from around the country. This experience will allow boys the opportunity to develop products, marketing strategies, and financial statements first hand, in a ‘real-life’ context. This is all done with the support and guidance of the teaching staff and business mentors. In addition, students will study other business concepts, such as human resources and exporting potential. Although some course topics are individual, students should be prepared to work in a group/team setting for most of the year. The context of Level 3 Business & Enterprise is global business. Assessment The course contributes towards NCEA Level 3 and University Entrance, with 4 of the 19 credits externally assessed through examination, and the remaining 15 credits internally assessed.
