Tim Pearson, BISP Business Academy Director.

 

Dear BISP community,

I would like to introduce the newly established BISP Business Academy, which is a brand new initiative between the school, business communities, educators and volunteers, created with the aim of inspiring business-minded young people to dream big and achieve their potential.

The academy will run as an extra-curricular educational programme as part of the BISP aspirational curriculum, and will focus on business management, finance and entrepreneurship.

In teams set up as actual businesses, the BISP Business Academy students will initially develop their own Market Entry Strategy for a product/service of their own choosing and submit their Business Plan to the Academy Director and the Academy Consultant.

Upon agreement, these businesses will begin to operate and trade just like any other business, with a targeted 12 month goal for achieving profit.

Alongside this, under the guidance of our external consultant, the academy students will experience real-time trading of stocks on the financial market, an experience that will prepare them for the dynamic world of financial trading.

I would like to extend an invitation to all students from Years 10 to 13 to participate in the academy, which will run every Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, commencing Tuesday, September 9.

Let’s get down to business.

Tim Pearson
