Business at Rugby High School
The aim of the Business department is to generate an entrepreneurial spirit in students that is substantiated with sound theoretical knowledge. Students will gain a comprehensive understanding of the four main functions within a business namely, Marketing, Finance, Operations and Human Resources. This breadth of knowledge provides students will all the basic understanding they need to start their own business in the future.
The course is structured to follow the development of a business from pre-trading all the way through successful start up and future expansion, providing students with an insight into the inner workings of a varying size and type of business. Students will often present material and have the opportunity to compete in business challenges locally and nationally. We will critically analyse the latest business case scenarios to dissect reasons for failure and success to build a desire in students to keep track of business news.
