Business Studies for junior Secondary Schools is a revised edition written in line with the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC) Curriculum (2012) of the Federal Government for the 9-year Basic Education programme as well as critical target of the National Economic Empowerment and Development Strategy (NEEDS), which focuses on value reorientation, poverty eradication, job creation, wealth generation and using education to empower the people.
Using the objectives of Business Studies as a guide, the writers elaborately discussed new topics and equally made relevant amendments to some of the old topics to align with the current curriculum and current trends in the economy. Further discussions highlighting the current trends in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the business world are also expertly written to provide all that is needed and even more.
The use of this book, together with the Workbooks and Teacher’s Guide, will provide a fertile ground on which the knowledge, skills and attitude of business will thrive. The series will be very useful for Junior Secondary School students and all those who wish to acquire basic business skills.
