    This class is a two-year college-level course (four semesters), started in 11th grade.  This course can be taken as part of the IB Diploma Programme OR as an individual course separate from the Diploma Programme.

    BMMT (Business, Management, Marketing, and Technology) is a rigorous and dynamic discipline that gives students an international perspective of business. Emphasis is placed on the following business functions: human resource management (HRM), finance and accounting, marketing, and operations management. Links between these topics are central to the course, as this integration promotes a complete overview of business management.

    This course covers a range of organizations from all sectors, as well as the socio-cultural and economic contexts in which those organizations operate. It also explores how individuals and groups interact within an organization, how they may be successfully managed, and how they can ethically optimize the use of resources in a world with increasing scarcity and concern for sustainability.

    The curriculum is designed to develop students’ knowledge and understanding of business management theories, as well as their ability to apply a range of tools, techniques, and skills—such as financial analysis. In addition, the course aims to develop transferable skills such as the ability to think critically and strategically; make ethically sound and well-informed decisions; understand the pace, nature, and significance of change; undertake long-term planning, analysis, and evaluation; and create and execute professional business presentations.
