We would like to welcome you to the second year of the BISP Business Academy, which is an initiative between the school, business communities, educators and volunteers with an aim to inspire young people to dream big and reach their potential.

The academy started 1 year ago and has been hugely successful, sparking an entrepreneurial spirit in many students so far. The academy runs as an extra-curricular program as part of the whole BISP aspirational curriculum and focuses on business management, finance and entrepreneurship.

In teams set up as actual businesses, the academy students initially develop their own market entry strategy for a product/service of their own choosing and submit their business plans to the Academy Director. Upon agreement, these businesses will begin to operate and trade just like any business with the 10-month goal of achieving a profit.

Alongside this, the academy students will experience real-time trading of stocks on the financial market, which is an experience that will prepare them for the dynamic world of financial trading.

We would like to extend an invitation to students from Years 10 to 13 who would like to be considered for this year’s academy, which will run every Tuesday afternoon commencing Tuesday 8th September, to contact Mr. Pearson or Mr. Turnbull if you have any further questions or need more information.
