The first 200 words of this essay...

I am going to study three contrasting businesses. I will investigate their aims, objectives, form of ownerships and industrial sector trends. The three different business I have chosen are retail (Sainsbury), Manufactures (Rolls Royce) and Charity (Oxfam). These three businesses are exceptionally dissimilar from each other as they are in different industrial sectors. This means that their aims and objectives and form of owner ship will be very different.

Forms of ownerships, information and history
