Course description

Business Studies (Applied)

Course content

Business Studies is a wide ranging course which develops an understanding of the methods and techniques used in budget setting, human resources management, marketing, managing business operations and enterprise. The relationship between business and the changing external environment is considered as well as decision making between elements such as employment, training and further study. What does the course contain? Business Studies allows students to understand matters which affect their everyday lives, for example, how the economy works. The course is a vocational one and therefore students will be encouraged to make visits to local businesses and complete research tasks on these businesses as part of their course work assignments. One exciting feature of this course is the visit being arranged to New York where students will be exploring locations of business interest such as the Stock Exchange in Wall Street and the United Nations.
