We look at the characteristics of an entrepreneur, marketing, product design, finance, human resources and business planning. Unit 2 is a controlled assessment. Unit 5 (Year 11) This unit introduces the student to the ways in which economists think and practise, and provides vital skills to help them understand some of the burning issues of the day e.g. growth, inflation, interest rates, employment, exchange rates and oil prices.
