NHC's level 3 business students explored the operations of the world’s largest business, Coca-Cola. They considered the impact of taxation, as well as cultural and social issues on stakeholders and business aims.
After their visit in November, the students set to work on a number of related tasks. The first was a competition, where students were asked to design a new flavour for the signature Coca-Cola brand.
After this, they investigated the political and social factors impacting the business in the UK and in other countries. Once they’d researched the cultural differences, product ranges and political changes, the students presented their work at an exhibition style event at the Hitchin campus.
The students also demonstrated the health impacts of full sugar variants with visuals, quiz questions and fun facts on the Hub TV.
Liam Hazely, one of the business students, said: “It made me nervous presenting to lots of people but it has been a really interesting topic to study, which was a lot more fun than just writing an assignment!”
Alex Townsend, level 3 business tutor, said: “I was so proud of all the students, they put a lot of effort into their display boards and everyone dressed smartly too. The day was a great way to assess and for students to realise just how much they learn in our sessions.”
