Why Choose Introduction to Business?

Introduction to Business provides students with a comprehensive insight into the key concepts of international business. The course has been developed specifically for SBC Canford International and classes are multinational, providing plenty of opportunities for students to develop their English language skills. Students are provided with an interactive and collaborative environment to learn in, as we believe they learn most effectively when actively applying their subject knowledge through communicative project work.

What You’ll Learn

Students will be taught the essentials of business, including finance, marketing, branding, market research and product design. As well as developing their theoretical knowledge of business practice, students will also have the opportunity to analyse real-life successful business models and develop their practical understanding of business strategies, through effective project tasks and team-building exercises.

How You’ll Learn: Time to Shine

As part of our Time to Shine programme, our students have the chance to actively apply their newfound knowledge and design a start-up business, working together to create a product and pitch it to a panel of experts for investment. In doing so, students will develop skills in creativity and originality, teamwork and leadership, and the art of delivering a successful sales pitch.

What You’ll Take Away

Our focus on creating a communicative space for students to learn in enables them to leave the course with higher confidence in using English, and a deeper understanding of the world of business. In addition, our Time to Shine programme is the ideal way for students to leave the course with a better understanding of how the theory of business is realised in practice.
