Business Studies 20 & 30

Business 20 and 30 courses focus on entrepreneurship, marketing, merchandising and business management. Students will apply their knowledge of marketing to plan, develop and manage a business in school or the local market. Through this venture, they should expect to assume roles and responsibilities of management in order to coordinate available resources and run the business. At the 30 level students will expand their knowledge and have the opportunity to get duo-credits through a partnership with SAIT and Junior Achievements. Business 30 is a demanding course that requires students to attend SAIT for on-campus instruction throughout the semester.
