Welcome to Fowler’s CTS Business section of the website.

Business activity affects the daily lives of all of us 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 some shape or form. They must be prepared to engage in business activity with confidence and competence. Young people need to understand how business functions, the role it plays in our society, the opportunities it generates, the skills it requires, and the impact it can have on their own lives and on society, today and in the future. The business studies program we offer will build a strong foundation for those who wish to move on to further study and training in specialized areas such as management, marketing, accounting, information and communication technology, or entrepreneurship. It will also provide practical skills for those who wish to move directly into the workplace.

Business studies provides students with a new, practical context for many of the subjects they studied at the junior high level, including mathematics, science and technology, language, and social studies. It helps students to recognize the relevance of these subjects as they are applied in the world of business
