Guidelines for Project Work in Business Studies for Class 12


The course in Business Studies is introduced at Senior School level to provide students with a sound understanding of the principles and practices bearing in business (trade and industry) as well as their relationship with the society. Business is a dynamic process that brings together technology, natural resources and human initiative in a constantly changing global environment. With the purpose to help them understand the framework within which a business operates, and its interaction with the social, economic, technological and legal environment, the CBSE has introduced Project Work in the Business Studies Syllabus for Classes XI and XII. The projects have been designed to allow students to appreciate that business is an integral component of society and help them develop an understanding of the social and ethical issues concerning them.

The project work also aims to empower the teacher to relate all the concepts with what is happening around the world and the student’s surroundings, making them appear more clear and contextual. This will enable the student to enjoy studies and use his free time effectively in observing what’s happening around.

By means of Project Work the students are exposed to life beyond textbooks giving them opportunities to refer materials, gather information, analyse it further to obtain relevant information and decide what matter to keep.
One Project to be done throughout the session, as per the existing scheme.

After doing the Project Work in Business Studies, the students will be able to do the following:

  • Probe deeper into personal enquiry ,initiate action and reflect on knowledge and skills, views etc. acquired during the course of Class XII .
  • Analyse and evaluate real world scenarios using theoretical constructs and arguments
  • Demonstrate the application of critical and creative thinking skills and abilities to produce an independent and extended piece of work.
  • Follow up aspects in which learners have interest.
  • Develop the communication skills to argue logically.
