Economics and Business give students the opportunity to develop their understanding of the ways businesses work within Australia, the participants in the market system and the ways they may influence the consumer. The rights, responsibilities and opportunities that arise for businesses, consumers and governments are considered along with the influences on the ways individuals work now and into the future. Knowledge and understanding skills are taught in an integrated manner, and in ways that are appropriate to specific local contexts. Students will be taught the content of this subject through contemporary issues, events and/or case studies. 


Students may deliver a start-up business proposal as a trade display.
