How We Nurture
Exposure - POA and EBS students can connect concepts and skills learnt to their everyday lives through authentic tasks reflecting real business context.
POA: Students understand how businesses measure and communicate their performance and make use of both accounting and non-accounting information related to their businesses to make decisions.
EBS: Students are given an opportunity to learn foundational business knowledge, transferable employability skills and values that will enable them to succeed in future areas of study and work.
Experience – To enhance experiential learning and bring subjects to life.
POA:Students understand business decision-making through peer deliberation on authentic business decision-making through scenarios-based questions. Students also have the opportunity to process business transactions through a simplified accounting software to experience the computerised accounting process.
EBS: EBS students experience Business Investigation by navigating the process of market research to gather, analyse information to make informed decisions about the marketing mix of authentic businesses. Learning journeys to neighbourhood malls and local attractions to understand retail practices and inbound tourism, help to enrich the understanding of the subject content and business context.
