The Commerce Department at Methodist Ladies' College is committed to implementing innovative teaching and learning strategies that focus on each student’s ability to understand how to navigate and make sense of our major financial, legal, economic and business institutions.
Commencing with a range of Middle School subjects that focus on developing financial literacy in students including Being a Global Economic Citizen, Going into Business, The Law and You and Financial Literacy for the Consumer, Commerce then moves to a full range of Senior School VCE offerings.
In these subjects, students are encouraged and empowered to develop the skills required to recognise and understand how key institutions integral to our society operate. By developing and maintaining direct contact with government and private businesses, students are equipped with the knowledge to assess and compare actual practices with contemporary theory, preparing them to become tomorrow’s decision makers.
Specialised curriculum areas in the VCE program include:
In the IB Program, Economics and Information Technology in a Global Society (ITGS) are popular options.
I felt MLC to be a really inclusive place that offered us all a huge amount of choice. The school was non-judgmental and actively encouraged us to pursue our goals. I really value the opportunities that we were given. Minnie, past student (Class of 1985)
