Business Studies - AS/A2 Levels
Five GCSEs at Grades A* - C including English Language.
This is one of the most varied and diverse subjects available, providing an insight into the many aspects of business and enabling students to progress to Higher Education qualifications in Marketing, Finance, Business, Management, Human Resources and Economics. It is a useful preparation for a career in business and management.
In the first year of study, you will look at Planning and Financing a Business, and Managing a Business. In Year 2, you’ll examine Strategies for Success, The Business Environment and Managing Change. Exam questions are based on real world scenarios, such as global recession, the decline of British manufacturing and the impact of new technology. It is therefore a distinct advantage that you maintain an up-to-date knowledge of business news by regularly reading newspapers, journals and web-based articles, and are aware of how economic influences can affect business.
