Grade 11_BM_Highlights of the week_26/08/16

Dear parents,

This week we discussed the Unit Test paper with students, explained them the importance of planning answers as per the command terms.

Also besides paper discussion we also completed the unit on Growth and Evolution, wherein we covered topics such as Joint Ventures, Strategic Alliances, Franchises, Mergers and Acquisition.

We often keep insisting students to read more business related magazines as that will help them to answer better in BM exams. So do check if they are actually reading something or if you find something interesting do share with them.
