Class Focus: Global Business

Rob Shesol’s syllabus for Global Business has ranged far and wide. His classes have covered basic business principles, how to develop ideas into practical and successful businesses, how to correctly construct business plans and financial statements, how to manage risk and opportunity whilst achieving targets, and how to consider the pros and cons of private and public ownership.

We know that our Business students will have learnt a lot from a teacher with so much experience…
