Introduction In Business Studies

Ages 9 - 16

Business Studies teaching program

An interactive simulation designed to provide students with a close-to-life experience of setting up their own business.

Jenny Pepper wants to set up a Pizza business. She has to persuade the bank to lend her the money she needs to set up the business. So she needs to produce a business plan; and this is where you, her consultant, come in.

From the point when you log on and decide the business name, you are responsible for critical decisions such as identifying the market, setting up the business, choosing staff, working out the costs and marketing. Instructed by the Guide, helped by Brains (who is fairly streetwise but often doesn't know the theory) and armed with a calculator and a glossary, it's up to you to complete different sections of the business plan which will persuade the bank or otherwise.

At the end you find out whether Jenny manages to get her bank loan.

Special Features

  • A complete multimedia business studies course.

  • ideal for group use.

  • Glossary explaining key terms

  • Extensive Teacher's Pack to accompany the CD-ROM.
