BUSINESS STUDIES AT JEAN VANIER – WHAT WE ARE ABOUT…
The fundamental purpose of the Business Studies program at Jean Vanier is to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to achieve success in secondary school, the workplace, postsecondary education or training, and daily life.
Business activity affects the daily lives of all Canadians as we work, spend, save, invest, travel, and play. It influences jobs, incomes, and opportunities for personal enterprise. Eventually, all students will encounter the world of business in their work and personal lives and they must be prepared to engage in business activity with confidence and competence.
The Business Studies program will build a strong foundation for those who wish to move on to further study and training in specialized areas such as management, international business, marketing, accounting, information and communication technology, or entrepreneurship. It will also provide practical skills for those who wish to move directly into the workplace.
Students are motivated and learn best when they understand the relevance of what they are studying. The Business Studies program provides rich opportunities for relevant, real-world learning experiences.
The Business Studies curriculum in Grades 9 to 12 offers a range of courses, all built on the belief that effective learning in all subjects of the discipline depends on the development of knowledge and skills in five critical areas:
- business skills
- communication in a business environment
- digital literacy
