Business management is a rigorous, challenging and dynamic discipline in Group 3, Individuals and societies. The role of business, as distinct from other organizations and actors in a society, is to produce and sell goods and services that meet human needs and wants by organizing resources. Profit – making, risktaking and operating in a competitive environment characterize most business organizations
Economics is the social science that studies the behaviour of individuals, households, and organizations (called economic actors, players, or agents), when they manage or use scarce resources, which have alternative uses, to achieve desired ends.
Agents are assumed to act rationally, have multiple desirable ends in sight, limited resources to obtain these ends, a set of stable preferences, a definite overall guiding objective, and the capability of making a choice. There exists an economic problem, subject to study by economic science, when a decision (choice) is made by one or more resource-controlling players to attain the best possible outcome under bound rational conditions. In other words, resource-controlling agents maximize value subject to the constraints imposed by the information the agents have, their cognitive limitations, and the finite amount of time they have to make and execute a decision.
Economics SL and HL
There is a paradigm shift from teacher centered learning to student centered learning in economics teaching. Teaching methodologies are designed to reward evidence of independent student thinking and enabling them to be responsible for their learning. To this end, diverse teaching strategies like group discussions, debates, presentations, commentaries, etc. are devised. This in turn will develop in the students the power of reflection, self confidence and self-awareness, ability to communicate ideas without fear and a willingness to take risks and be open minded.

The basic necessity of many humans change from their basic needs to technology. We are now living in a technology oriented world where our subject gain more importance in this sense
ITGS SL and HL
The IB Diploma Programme information technology in a global society (ITGS) course is the study and evaluation of the impacts of information technology (IT) on individuals and society. It explores the advantages and disadvantages of the access and use of digitized information at the local and global level. ITGS provides a framework for the student to make informed judgments and decisions about the use of IT within social contexts. Although ITGS shares methods of critical investigation and analysis with other social sciences, it also considers social and ethical considerations that are common to other subjects in Group 3. Students come into contact with IT on a daily basis because it is so pervasive in the world in which we live. This increasingly widespread use of IT, inevitably raises important questions with regard to the social and ethical considerations that shape our society today. ITGS offers an opportunity for a systematic study of these considerations, whose range is such that they fall obove the scope of any other single discipline.
The aims of the Information technology in a global society (ITGS) course at SL and HL are to:
The ITGS course embodies global and international awareness in several distinct ways. It explores the advantages and disadvantages of the access to, and use of, digitized information at both the local and global level. Teaching and learning activities should weave the parts of the syllabus together using the ITGS triangle(Strand1, Strand2 and Strand3) and should focus on their interrelationships so that, by the end of the course, students are able to appreciate the connections between all the different strands of the syllabus. The way in which the strands can be approached is flexible and any starting point is acceptable, but the study of real-life scenarios based on current events must be used as a support for teaching.
Psychology is the systematic study of behaviour and mental processes.Psychology has its roots in both the natural and social sciences, leading to a variety of research designs and applications, and providing a unique approach to understanding modern society.
IB psychology examines the interaction of biological, cognitive and sociocultural influences on human behaviour, thereby adopting an integrative approach.Understanding how psychological knowledge is generated, developed and applied enables students to achieve a greater understanding of themselves and appreciate the diversity of human behaviour. The ethical concerns raised by the methodology and application of psychological research are key considerations in IB psychology.
In addition, the aims of the psychology course at SL and at HL are to:
Having followed the psychology course at SL or at HL, students will be able to demonstrate:
1. Knowledge and comprehension of specified content
2.Application and analysis
3. Synthesis and evaluation
4. Selection and use of skills appropriate to psychology
The syllabus is designed to allow sufficient time for in-depth analysis, evaluation and consolidation of learning. Teachers are encouraged to find ways of delivering
the course that are most relevant to their students' interests and to the school's resources. The overall aim of the course is to give students a deeper understanding of the nature and scope of psychology
The different parts of the syllabus should complement each other. They are taught most successfully when they are integrated throughout the course of study, allowing students to make comparisons and to evaluate different psychological theories and arguments.
