eye4business studies (Post 16 Business Studies Event)

On Thursday 16th April 2015 the eye4education team arrived at St Michael’s Grammar School Lurgan with a reputation to deliver and that we did!

We ran a bespoke Post 16 Business Studies Event covering the following topics:

Demand and Supply
Price Elasticity
Income Statements
GDP/Interest Rates/Inflation
Current Economic Climate
Economies and Diseconomies of Scale
Styles of Leadership
Market Share/Growth
Breakeven Analysis
Market Structures

A dummy company was set up for the day and pupils attended in professional attire and sat in teams of business consultancies. Each topic was presented via a case study, then an interactive activity. Each activity was scored per team, and post this, the correct answers provided to the pupils. On the day we ‘hired’ the top business consultancy which was the team that scored the highest points.
