Business Leadership & Marketing
Explore the exciting world of business and marketing. In Year I, students will learn how an effective business is run and how to write a business plan and funding proposal. During Year II, students will focus on marketing, and will learn how products are developed, branded, and sold to businesses and consumers. Creative hands-on projects, multimedia presentations and group work lead students to an understanding of distribution, marketing-information management, market planning, pricing, product/service management, promotion, and selling. Work-based learning strategies include cooperative education, entrepreneurship, and school-based enterprise. Training will also include experience in how to run a business, utilizing The Falcon’s Nest School Store - a student run enterprise and learning lab.
