Business Studies is designed not only for students aiming for a career within the business sector or considering building their own enterprise in the future but also for young people who wish to build a valuable range of skills and knowledge that can equip them for employment later in life.
In A level Business Studies, students start by learning the basics of how businesses are organised and then work through the different functional areas of a business. In year 12 students study marketing, including market research, analysing data, and how businesses make decisions about price and promotions, they then move to operations and how businesses can increase their efficiency and improve quality. Students then study human resources including recruitment, training and motivation and finally studying finance analysing performance using break even analysis and cash flow forecasts.
In year 13 students study strategic decision making, starting by analysing the current strategic position of a firm, then choosing a strategic position and evaluating the methods a business can use to follow its chosen strategy.
