2Introduction to Business
Students enrolled in BBI2O1 will have the opportunity to gain knowledge in all facets of business. Students will learn concepts in Marketing, International Business, Human Resource Management, Personal Finance, Accounting, Investment Management, and Entrepreneurship. As a result, students will be better able to decide which course to enroll for in Grade 11 and 12.
The course consists of hands-on projects including creating a business plan for your small business, advertisements, commercials, as well as designing your own cereal box and brand. Students will learn to use programs such as Adobe Illustrator to create logos, Microsoft Publisher to create business cards, Excel to create financial statements, PowerPoint to create presentations, and Word for report writing. Students will also have an opportunity to participate in the Nipissing University Stock Market Challenge, where they will compete with high school students across Canada while managing their investment portfolio.
