This print and digital coursebook is organised around the concepts and topics of the new Business Management syllabus. The case-studies and topics are set in accessible international contexts. The coursebook follows the IB Diploma ATL principles, developing higher-order thinking skills and conceptual understanding. The coursebook is focussed on a successful learner journey with clear learning objectives, integrated TOK links, reflection opportunities, self-evaluation checklists, projects, and exam-style questions and support.
There are also scaffolded activities to help students develop into confident, independent learners with support, stretch and challenge activities. Each chapter increases in complexity – encouraging learners to become independent, critical thinkers, and is followed by reflection activities. The coursebook contains a ‘Preparing for Assessment’ chapter with an explanation of assessment techniques, quantitative skills and examples of how to approach essays and case studies on the exam. There is also support for evaluative essay writing (how students demonstrate they have evaluated evidence) and quantitative skills.
The resource is written in a clear, accessible style to support English as a second language learners. Concepts are explained clearly, with content presented in manageable segments. Key business terms are explained in context and there is a glossary of key terms and formulas.
