It is virtually certain that one day you will work in a business organisation and use business skills. Even if you become a surgeon, a professional sports person, 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 on the course. Business is the study of organisations that seek to provide us with the things we want – at a price. You will find out how they identify what we want, how they make it and how they calculate if it is worthwhile.

Where does this course 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 but many degrees will mix Business with other disciplines, such as Languages, Economics and Law.

What Our Students Say

Business was by far my favourite subject during college due to its varied and challenging nature, making every lesson engaging. It gave me the passion to strive to work towards my career goals within the business field, and has allowed me to see many everyday situations in a different way. The sheer dedication of the business tutors left me with the most positive memories of Carmel, as they were most keen to help students and everybody felt comfortable enough to ask questions.

I am currently studying Business Management at University of Leeds. The quality of teaching, support and encouragement from the business department was instrumental in shaping me into a more hard working and self-motivated individual which has helped to prepare me for university.
