Business Studies and Economics

Business education is essential in developing young people with positive attitudes towards innovation and the world of work. Here at Robert Gordon’s College, we actively engage with the world ‘beyond the classroom’ to ensure that our pupils are academically and socially prepared to meet the challenges of education, work and life.

The three subjects available in the department – Accounting, Business Management and Economics - are offered at National 5 level in S3/S4 and at Higher level in S5 and S6. Courses in Advanced Higher Accounting, Business Management and Economics are offered to pupils in S6 who have shown significant aptitude and interest. As part of our National 5 courses, pupils complete an Added Value Unit which takes the form of an assignment.

Our schedule of business visits and visiting speakers highlights the realities of the commercial world and involvement in a variety of national competitions such as the Bank of England Interest Rate Challenge and Student Investor ensures our pupils have the opportunity to experience further challenge and enjoyment.
