Business Studies

Business Studies

Business Studies is a subject that will give you an understanding of the world of business. As part of the course, we look at the ways businesses are set up, the way they function and the way they are managed. We look at the impact of growth and changes in business; giving you the opportunity to complete your own investigation in to a business.

Business is front-page news.  The way companies operate is under greater scrutiny than ever before, while TV programmes like The Apprentice and Dragon’s Den have raised the profile of business to a new generation. During your studies we will discuss current hot business topics as they appear in the news and talk about the potential impact of what is reported.
