Business Studies at Cheam High School

Course description

Business Studies is a subject that is relevant to all of us as we spend much of our lives dealing with businesses, either as employees or potential customers. Gaining an understanding of how businesses operate will also help equip you for a wide range of careers and for some, will develop your ability to run your own business. Learning about the environment in which businesses operate helps all of us understand and deal with the social, legal, economic, political and technological factors that affect our lives.
