In Business Studies students examine how a business organisation operates in theory, and then relate this to real-life situations. Students are given the opportunity to improve their analysis and evaluation skills as they apply theory to real business scenarios.
Within the AS course decision making is considered from the perspective of Marketing, Finance, Human Resources and Operations. At A2 students are given the opportunity to consider businesses from a strategic perspective including managing change and internationalisation.
Enrichment activities include an opportunity to ‘virtually’ invest £100,000 in the stock market through the nationwide Student Investor Challenge, to use their entrepreneurial skills to turn £10 into a profit through the Young Enterprise ‘Tenner Challenge’. We also benefit from outside speakers who are able to bring real business experience into the classroom and also a trip to a car manufacturer.
