It is virtually certain that one day you will work in a business organisation and use business skills. Therefore, A Level Business Studies gives an understanding of the many problems businesses face and encourages students to develop analytical ways to solve them. Even if you become a surgeon, a professional sportsperson, a teacher or an artist you will need to be able to manage resources and perhaps, people. You may need to promote your goods or services and you will need to understand finance.
These are the major aspects you will learn about in A Level Business Studies. Business is the study of organisations that seek to provide us with the things we want – at a price. Additionally, you will find out how they identify what we want, how they make it and how they calculate if it is worthwhile.
Where does A Level Business Studies lead?
Our students go on to study a wide range of courses at university all over the UK and beyond. Most universities have a Business School. There are Business courses and more focused courses, such as in Finance, Management or Marketing. However, many degrees will mix Business with other disciplines, such as Languages, Economics and Law.
