Teacher in Charge: Mr B. Megson
ECONOMICS & BUSINESS STUDIES – YEAR 11
NCEA LEVEL 1
Economics is the study of how people as individuals and groups satisfy their needs by allocating and managing scarce resources. There are many career options either within Economics, in the private sector or with government agencies, both within New Zealand and overseas. It also enables you to enter the workforce as an employee or become a self-employed entrepreneur.
The study of business is about how individuals and groups of people organise, plan, and act to create and develop goods and services to satisfy customers. The knowledge and skills gained in Business Studies can help shape ‘creative, energetic and enterprising young people’ who will contribute to New Zealand’s economic future.
Students will also do a “Market Day” using real money to hopefully make a profit. This standard is worth 6 credits.
