Challenging young minds, nurturing global vision
business basics

“Business Basics” is an innovative program designed to teach 10-year old kids the role of business and economics in today’s life. All classes are led by an experienced tutor through real-life interaction.

The program consists of two 5-weeks modules. Upon completion of our program students will be able to:

  • Explain the basic economic concepts and recognize these concepts in their everyday life
  • Describe simple production processes and main factors of production
  • Identify different types of revenues and costs and make basic profit and loss calculations
  • Analyze connections in today’s world economy

Program length: 5 weeks x 45 min

Language: English

Teaching format: Students and their teacher connect through Zoom.

Each classroom has 3-5 students and a tutor.

Learning methodology:

Ability grouping: We exercise great care when selecting the students and pairing them in the classroom.

Adaptive teaching: While all our classrooms follow the same program, class activities are adapted to each child’s interests and development level and may different per classroom.

Case method: Students study videos of existing children entrepreneurs and stories about famous companies they know and learn to understand what that business is about.

Learning through collaborative argumentation and Learning by teaching:

+50% of the class time is dedicated to student interactions, where tutor acts as a facilitator. Students learn a great deal by explaining their ideas to others or defending their point of view.

Open-ended problem solving: To motivate child’s critical and creative thinking our exercises often contain incomplete information. Students are asked not only to show their final solution, but also to explain how they got their answers and which assumptions they made on the way.

The program aims to develop the following key competencies for lifelong learning:

  1. Sense of initiative and entrepreneurship
  2. Digital competence
  3. Learning to learn

Lesson dates:

Our classes take place on Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons (Europe time).
