Financial Tools Debate in Grade 12 Business Management

To start off this fabulous decade, the Grade 12 Business Management class  began with an ecstatic debate on the financial tools of business. Split into groups, they research and created an infographic in preparation for the impending discussion. In contrast to previous infographics, this activity was in preparation for the final exams as it pushed them to more profound understanding to defend their arguments.

During the debate, opposing teams presented their infographics in 5-minute intervals and a Q&A section was taken place to further examine each team’s understanding of their respective tools. After each round, they’ve gotten closer and closer in selecting the most informative poster and presentation, which will be decided by their fellow critical colleagues. Despite the competitive nature of this debate, each round ended with a cordial handshake and all students left with a plethora of knowledge.

Join us in B5-G29 next week on Monday at 13:05 – 14:10 and Wednesday at 8:10 – 9:10 for an outstanding final debate!

Marketing Strategies Exploration

As a part of Year 2 DP Business management, students are carrying out presentations exploring the marketing strategies used in different major multinational companies of their choice including Netflix, Starbucks,etc.

During this process, students had the opportunity to investigate on the application of a variety of tools which support their understanding of the marketing aspect of the companies such as marketing mix (7ps), SWOT analysis and positioning map along with the CUEGIS concepts consisting of change, culture, ethics, globalisation, innovation, thus, help them prepare for their May 2020 final exams.

In addition to the knowledge gained through the exploration, by working in small groups, students had developed their collaboration skills which is essential to every person’s life.

DP Business Management: From Collaboration to Intellectual Gain

Year 2 DP Business Management students have started the year off with profit in mind: Specifically their own intellectual profit.

Working together in small groups, students have mapped out their business plan for DP Year 2, starting with a thorough SWOT (Strengths, Weakness, Opportunities, Threats)  analysis of what they know & still need to know for May 2020 exams.

Teacher-supported student-led investigations & presentations have included such interesting topics as the strengths & weaknesses of the Ansoff Matrix, environmental & ethical factors driving business decisions, internal & external factors impacting organisation growth & evolution & an evaluation of the impact of MNCs (Multinational Corporations) on their host countries.

Of course, there were a few STEEPLE & SWOT analyses, Fishbone Diagrams, Decision Trees & Gantt Charts thrown in for good measure.
