A Level Business Studies provides students with access to a wide range of possible career and higher education opportunities through learning about different types of businesses, their objectives, how they operate, how they are organised, how they market themselves and the strategies they put in place for success.
Students develop skills that they can use in either planning their own business start-up or for working within a small, medium, large or international organisation.
Business Studies combines well with a range of Social Science, Humanities and Mathematics subjects, leading to University courses in areas such as Management, Marketing, Human Resources, Law, Accountancy and Economics.
Aims of the Course
- to develop students’ understanding of organisations and the markets they serve and the processes of adding value and decision-making in a dynamic, external environment
- to make students aware of the economic, environmental, ethical, legal, governmental, social and technological issues associated with business activity
