The Lower Secondary Business Studies Syllabus contributes to integral human development as it is based on the students’ physical environments, societies, and cultures. It links to the Cambridge Education Plan’s vision which is that secondary education enables students to achieve their individual potential to lead productive lives as members of the local, national and international community by undertaking a broad range of subjects and work related activities at school that can be used in everyday life.
By studying Business Studies, students acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values to participate in the world’s changing economic and business environment. This subject will enable students to acquire enterprise skills by actively participating in organised activities and to interact with others using appropriate communication techniques. They acquire skills for their future roles as citizens, workers, employers, entrepreneurs, and consumers.
