Students learn about franchising during visit

SEVENTEEN Year 10 IGCSE students of Jerudong International School (JIS) Business Faculty recently conducted an educational trip to McDonald’s at Jerudong to learn about franchising.

The visit provided the students the opportunity to relate the theory from their textbooks to the wider, real life context, where they were able to evaluate and discuss setting up a business.

According to school’s teacher Scott Conway, the students gained an excellent understanding of business operations during the visit.

“The students look at five key areas – Business Activity and Influences on Business, People in Business, Finance, Marketing and Operations as part of their study,” said Conway.

Conway added that it’s always good to show them real world examples as McDonald’s is the world’s largest franchise network with an incredible USD89 billion in global sales, and despite increasing competition, it has held on to this spot every year since the rankings were first released in 2000.

During the trip the students were tasked with completing exam style questions on franchising.
