Year 11 Business Plan Challenge 2015

The Year 11 Business Plan Challenge is a competition designed to encourage business thinking among high school students.

Participants select a new or existing product/service and develop a business plan that innovatively delivers the product/service to the market. When business plans have been completed, students present their research on developing and marketing their product as well as the relevant financial and human resource implications.

Students who participate in the Year 11 Business Plan Challenge gain valuable insight into the interesting opportunities that await them in the business world.

A great overview of business

The various elements addressed in any business plan align very closely with the discipline areas offered across the Newcastle Business School.
