Business Studies A Level at Chelsea Academy
At AS you will study two main topics. The first is ‘Planning and Financing a Business’ and includes studying the different types of business structure and an introduction to money matters. The second topic is ‘Managing a Business’ and develops your knowledge of increasing profits, recruiting and managing employees, operations management (including customer service and technology) and marketing.
At A2 the first of the two topics studied is ‘Strategies for Success’ and includes financial strategies to improve profits, strategies to take on the competition, operational strategies to improve products for improving employee relations. These are the four cornerstones of a successful business. The second topic is ‘The Business Environment and Managing Change’. This helps you to plan the vision of a business and considers how organisations can best cope with the impact of economic, cultural, political or technological changes.
A grade 6 in GCSE English is required, and a GCSE in Business Studies would be an advantage but is not essential.
Through studying Business Studies at A Level, students will be well prepared for degrees in the field of business or finance. Future employment prospects may include working for a corporation or management consultancy. All businesses (and other organisations like charities and hospitals) need sound business skills behind them.
