EMS Details

Economic Management Sciences is taught in Grades 8 and 9 and covers the fundamentals of both Economics and Accounting, enabling learners to easily transition into those respective subjects in senior years. Economics and Accounting are both vital subjects which open up many job opportunities in the corporate world; having EMS as a broad base of knowledge into the business world is extremely beneficial for learners, particularly those wishing to study business degrees after school.

The boys learn economic fundamentals, such as supply and demand, international trade, practical accounting applications and solutions. The subject makes extensive use of technology – learners are upskilled in advanced excel spreadsheet applications that makes the learning interactive, as well as directly applicable in day-to-day working environments. A wide range of digital assessment materials are available for learners to access, learn and test themselves.

Economic Management Sciences – which forms part of our Department of Commerce – is taught in Grades 8 and 9 and covers the fundamentals of both Economics and Accounting. Both are important subjects to open many job opportunities in the corporate world – having EMS as a broad base of knowledge into the business world is extremely beneficial for students, particularly those wishing to study Business degrees after school. Half the year is spent learning pure economics e.g. demand and supply, international trade, etc. and the other half is spent learning about Accounting. There is a wide array of online assessment materials the students can use to test themselves. The Accounting module makes extensive use technology applications to make the learning fun, remotely accessible, and instantly interactive.
