Brad Opfer

DP Business Management Educator

My name is Suraj, and I am your lead contributor. I have been teaching DP Business Management for 12 years as well as working as Extended essay coordinator. I have worked in IB world schools in three countries and taught A-Level Business, IGCSE Business Studies & Economics. Further, I am the IBDP examiner for Business Management Higher Level Paper 2 and Extended Essay. In my teaching career, I have received two outstanding international teaching awards from two IB schools in Shanghai, China. It is my goal not only to provide my students with the basic understanding and application of the subject, but also to enable them to work with each other in-group settings, be creative, and to effectively communicate their ideas and concerns. I love guiding high school students as they learn and grow.
