Business Studies

“Business Studies is a really well taught subject that has deepened my interest much further than I expected.  It is a fantastic subject to study, and complements Economics perfectly.  I have been inspired so much that I now have ambitions to become an entrepreneur.”   

 Business Studies is a popular and well-liked subject at A Level. Content in the first year focuses on understanding the role of different departments within a business, from marketing to finance and even managing people. Students will also cover some of the technical aspects of starting up a business including developing business plans and how to raise start-up capital and will learn some of the theories and skills essential to good management. The second year of study focuses on business strategy and multinational corporations. As part of the course, students are expected to keep up to date with important business and financial news in the press in addition to their normal homework tasks. Real life business case studies will form a regular part of many lessons. Students really enjoy Business Studies, many choosing to continue the subject at university level.
