This subject is for anyone – we all come into contact with businesses every day of our lives and this subject will give you a greater insight to the workings of business and industry.

- Managers, leadership and decision making
- Decision making to improve marketing

It is not necessary for you to have followed a course in Business at GCSE. Studying Business requires the manipulation of figures, so it is highly recommended that applicants should have at least a grade B or above in Mathematics and English.
Teaching will involve a variety of methods including group work, class discussions and individual research. As the world of business is constantly changing you will need to have an enquiring mind and be able to keep pace with current affairs through the use of newspapers and the internet. Studying A Level Business involves finding solutions to business problems and you may be required to present your findings in the form of presentations and reports. This new course includes greater use of numeracy and literacy skills, and students can expect to have regular assessments in order to show their progress.
