Commercial Awareness – What Does That Even Mean?
In your quest for a TC, you’ll encounter concepts from finance as well as commercial law. If you do not come from a finance or economics background, chances are that these concepts will feel like murky phantasms with no substance.
We’re here to demystifying these concepts for you, in a way that students can understand. There is a wealth of literature out there expounding upon the intricacies of the financial world. On one end of the spectrum, venerable tomes like “Principles of Corporate Finance” promise great insight. If you get through all 969 pages that is. On the other end, casual business reports in the news challenge the limits of your imagination by making you fill in the blanks yourself.
Like many works of neither herculean nor miniscule proportions, we will aim for the sweet spot between the two extremes despite not knowing where that is. Probably between the ears of whoever came up with the vacuous phrase “commercial awareness”.
