7414 Small Business Management
Small Business Management is a course in business ownership, management and marketing. You will study entrepreneurship topics covering financing, advertising layout and design, and all the aspects to creating a business plan. This class also involves the operation of Capital High School store, the Bear Necessities. The Bear Necessities is a retail-training laboratory which provides opportunity for development of skills and knowledge through “hands-on” experience in purchasing, selling, pricing, promotion, product and service planning, customer service, individual and group critical thinking and decision-making. These skills are taught and reinforced through Virtual Business-Retail. In addition to this class, participation in the Montana High School Business Challenge allows the class to learn the aspect of business management through competition. Financial literacy and the development of a business plan complete the year. Whether you are moving into higher education or entering the working world, SBM will provide an easier understanding of advanced business principles. This class allows for opportunities in DECA which plans and implements Night to Shine and options to compete at state and national levels in marketing and business entrepreneurship.
