Course content

At AS Level Business Studies you will investigate issues of starting a business, including financial planning. You will focus on how established businesses might improve their effectiveness by making tactical decisions at a functional level considering Finance, People in Business, Operation Management Marketing and Competition.

At A2 Level Business Studies you will build on that solid knowledge-base with another two main learning topics.
