What will I study?
Business plays a crucial role in our economy and society, providing us with wealth and affecting our quality of life. Innovation and the efficient management of resources, such as people and finance, are crucial for success as illustrated in popular television series including The Apprentice and Dragons’ Den.
This course explores the many factors and challenges facing commercial organisations and examines them in the context of real-life business scenarios. You will focus on areas including starting a business and financial planning, and aspects relating to managing a business such as people, finance, operations and marketing. You will study business strategy, performance evaluation and management of the wider business environment.
Each year we welcome a wide range of guest speakers, with recent visitors representing
organisations including Dixons PLC, Diageo and Redmayne-Bentley stockbrokers. Optional field trips provide students with a further insight in the world of business.
Whilst many students continue on to study subjects including accounting, banking and finance, business management and marketing at university, this course provides a strong grounding for those wishing to pursue many other subject areas at degree level.
Alternatively, students may consider direct entry into employment; for example general business and administrative roles.
