Economics & Business Studies
“If you owe your bank a hundred pounds, you have a problem. But if you owe a million, it has.”
John Maynard Keynes
Economics and Business Studies at Blessed William Howard is an interesting, relevant and popular subject that includes the study of Economics, Starting a business, marketing, finance, the role of government, Europe and the global economy.
Economics and Business may be chosen as an option for GCSE and many students continue the subject into A-Level and at University.
To support learning we also invite guest speakers from local businesses to deliver talks on their role and expertise within business.
The department also promotes the use of web based learning aids and assessments. It also has a dedicated website containing daily news updates and interactive learning materials.
In addition, students are encouraged to join the ‘Student Investor Challenge’, which is an approved national on-line trading competition that keeps students inspired and motivated. Many of our A level students subscribe to The Economist, giving them greater depth of understanding to the national and global economy.
