Business Studies Subject Information

There are endless reasons why students will benefit from studying business at school. Even for those who do not wish to work in business or retail, the study of basic bookkeeping, banking and business will always be useful for everyone in managing their personal budgets etc.

At Junior Cycle students will focus on the areas of personal finance, enterprise and our economy. They will develop their understanding of being a consumer, banking, household budgeting and the world of business. Business studies at senior cycle will focus to a greater extent on business structures, legislation and management. Transition Year students also study an enterprise module.

Business Students have received training from the local Bank on running a successful school bank. First Years continue to be very entrepreneurial and have reached the National Finals of the Student Enterprise Programme. One of our students has also represented Ireland at the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship Ireland (NFTE) 2020 National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge.
