Business Department

The Thornhill Secondary School Business department offers a wide variety of courses to interest all students, regardless of their career goals, including: 

  • IDC4U0 - Grade 12 - Sports and Entertainment Marketing


Business classes focus on developing skills to be used in everyday life, the workplace and professional careers in business.  Students use critical thinking skills, analysis of cases, research, computer applications, essay writing, presentation, decision making, debate, role playing and problem solving in modern business contexts.  In addition the Business department offers Advances Placement courses in microeconomics and macroeconomics, leading to the writing of AP exams in May.  Students who do well on these exams may qualify for advanced standing at Canadian and US universities.
Department members strive to achieve a welcoming learning environment for their students, which fosters academic excellence, discussion, and skill building in the areas of Knowledge and Understanding, Thinking and Inquiry, Application and Communication, and the role of business as a stakeholder in society.
Students are encouraged to join DECA, our award winning business club that participates in regional, provincial and international competitions.  All students are welcome regardless of grade level, and are not required to take a business course to join.
