The first four chapters in the first section deal with introduction to commerce, and domestic and international businesses.

The authors provided a complete coverage regarding small and medium enterprises, types of business ownerships, and investments. Students are introduced to various approaches in stock management, finance, human resources, and other matters, such as risks and information. The authors also discussed how to analyse a company’s performance by calculating the return on capital, and gross and net profits. They also shared several calculation examples, such as cash dividends, reserves, and return on investment.
