IB Business and Management Year 1

1 year, 1.0 credit, Grades: 11 and 12

Business and Management introduces students to the principles of organization and growth of companies. In the first year, students consider structures, types and ethics of businesses and then learn about making and recording profit through financial statements. In the second term, students analyze and create a marketing campaign and in the fourth quarter study the impact of the external environment on a firm listed in the Russian Stock Exchange. Evaluation is primarily through case studies and a final examination, though all the ground work for the Internal Assessment is completed before the end of quarter four.
