Why choose A Level Business?

Business is one of the most popular choices in the UK at both A level and degree level. Many of the concepts and issues that are dealt with in the course are ones that you will face in the world outside of education. The business world is constantly changing and the course reflects this through the examination of modern, cutting-edge theories that the most successful firms are employing today.

  •  Develop a critical understanding of organisations and their ability to meet society’s needs and wants.

  •  Generate enterprising and creative approaches to business opportunities, problems and issues.
  • Be aware of the ethical dilemmas and responsibilities faced by organisations and individuals.
  • Acquire a range of relevant business and generic skills, including decision making, problem solving, the challenging of assumptions and critical analysis.
  • Apply numerical skills in a range of business contexts.
