The Business Studies A-level aims to encourage learners to develop a critical understanding of business organisations, the markets they serve and the process of adding value.
Today, business is ‘big business’. To be successful every organisation needs a business strategy that will see them not just grow their market share but do so in a profitable manner. It has also become increasingly important that businesses are ethical in their handling of not only their employees but also their environmental processes.
As part of the course you will develop an awareness of the impact external factors, such as the economy, governmental and legal issues have on businesses. You will also acquire a range of skills, including decision-making, problem solving and an ability to evaluate where appropriate.
It may be possible to study this subject on a part-time basis.
