Students in the BEAM Program will earn up to 6 high school credits:

  • This course will allow students to explore the decisions that individuals and institutions, including governments, make in response to economic issues such as globalization, trade agreements, economic inequalities, regulation, and public/private spending. Students will apply the concepts of economic thinking and the economic inquiry process, as well as economic models and theories, to investigate, and develop  informed opinions about, economic trade-offs, growth, and sustainability and related economic issues.
  • This course will provide an overview of the importance of international business and trade in the global economy and explore the factors that influence success in international markets. Students will learn about the techniques and strategies associated with marketing, distribution, and managing international business effectively. This course will prepare students for postsecondary programs in business, including international business, marketing, and management.
  • Students will focus on the development of leadership skills used in managing a successful business. Students will analyse the role of a leader in business, with a focus on decision making, management of group dynamics, workplace stress and conflict, motivation of employees, and planning. Effective business communication skills, ethics, and social responsibility will also be emphasized.
  • This course will connect legal theory and economic reasoning which will allow students to create new research agendas in the fields of behavioural economics, public choice theory, business law etc. Students will further explore a range of contemporary legal issues and how they are addressed in both Canadian and international law. Students will develop an understanding of the principles of Canadian and international law and of issues related to human rights and freedoms, conflict resolution, and criminal, environmental, and workplace law.
