Welcome to Year 12

VCE Business Management

My name is Mr Peter Hughes and I
will be your teacher next year.


Apart from teaching, I have
extensive experience as an
Accountant in both small and large
scale organisations.


In 2010 I was awarded a
Postgraduate Certificate in
Corporate Management at Deakin.

The 2012 VCE Program


Students will gain an understanding of how resources are
managed in
large scale organisations.



Management of resources will be linked directly to the
objectives of the
organisation.

The 2012 VCE Program


Students will engage with contemporary management
theories and be able to
apply them
to real business
scenarios.



The dynamics of the course involves students gaining a
deep understanding of an Australian Securities Exchange
(ASX) top 100 Corporation.

Familiarise yourself with the VCAA website resources
relating to VCE Business Management.



Download a copy of the study design and read it.



The study design outlines how the course will be
delivered next year.



Importantly, the study design indicates how this unit will
be assessed both at school and in the final examination.

What is Corporations Management?

Business Management has evolved over time as a skill
using;


Economics


Law


Psychology


Human Relations


Business Communications

Corporations Management


This year we will concentrate on Large Scale
Organisations.



There may not be many of these Large Scale
Organisations operating in our area so we must look
closely at the Annual Reports of the organisations we
have decided to concentrate on this year.

VCE Studies require a
balance of work, leisure
and rest.


Your studies are very
similar to the activities of
Business Managers.


I wish you every success
in your studies in VCE
Business Management
next year.

Course Delivery


Each week you will receive a handout for the slides I will
present during class time.



The handouts are designed for you to add notes to as I
deliver the classes.



The actual Power Point Slides will be available from the
website as I deliver them. This should be beneficial for
those students who may miss a class.

Course Delivery


Each Section of Unit 3 and Unit 4 is followed by a School
Assessed Coursework (SAC) activity.



In 2011 there were 3 SACs for Unit 3 and



3 SACs for Unit 4.



Students receive ample time for revision between the end
of the content delivery for each section and the SAC.



SACs provide an excellent opportunity for exam technique
and practice.

Revision Workshop

2011 had a one day
revision workshop that
covered Unit 3 & 4.


The workshop was in
Week 2 of the 3
rd

Term
Holidays.


2012 will see another
revision workshop and
accommodation is
available for Nhill
students.
