It is important for people in all walks of life to understand the nature and purpose of business. Students generally find Business dynamic and engaging to study as they develop the knowledge and skills to analyse data, think critically about issues and make informed decisions – these skills are needed for further study and employment.
The A level course allows students to acquire skills, such as: how to assemble and interpret data, how to put over your point of view fluently, as well as develop knowledge in many areas of business. This includes topics such as: why businesses exist, the role of shareholders, the external environment, what managers do, elements of marketing, the value of objectives. These are taught through the use of case studies, investigations and activities with a clear academic focus.
