Business Studies at Stantonbury Campus

Course description

Business Studies is the study of why people set up businesses, how they grow into multinational companies and what it is like to work for them and be their customers. Our course places a strong emphasis on ethical issues such as the Third World and the Environment. Over the course of two years students will study the following: planning and Financing a Business (AS), managing a Business (AS), The Business environment and Managing Change (A2) and objectives and Strategies for Success (A2). Business Studies is an excellent subject to study if you want to understand the business world as a consumer, a worker or a potential entrepreneur. At the end of the first year, students will sit two oneā€hour examinations covering all of the AS topics. In the second year students sit two modular examinations covering A2 topics. You have the opportunity to take part in Young Enterprise and we have industry links for guest speakers.

Assessment

Five level two qualifications (e.g. A* - C at GCSE). At least four of these grades will be from GCSE
