Business Studies is available to students in year 10/11 and the sixth form. The Department believes our students will succeed by providing a stimulating environment that is conducive to learning with support, challenge, praise and encouragement.
This qualification will develop your knowledge and understanding of how businesses are organised and managed. It explores the question ‘what is a business?’ and investigates the business functions of human resource management, marketing, accounting and finance.
Different internal and external elements of a business are introduced, and the context in which a business operates explained. You’ll explore the common aims and characteristics of business – investigating what makes them different.
Business structures, cultures and functions are identified and the political, social, economic, technological and ethical considerations affecting business are introduced.
