This one-semester course is intended to help you explain the concept of accounting, identify
different firm ownership structures, explain the importance of business ethics, and describe the
scope of quality management. The course has 17 lessons organized into 4 units. Each unit has

the different types of capital that a business needs at different stages, the nature of legally
binding contracts, the different functions of the human resources division of a company, and the
types of risks that entrepreneurs face.
You will submit the Unit Activity documents to your teacher, and you will grade your work in the
Lesson Activities by comparing them with given sample responses. The Unit Activities
