A Level Business Studies can provide a stepping stone into another field, perhaps onto a totally unrelated course. If you want to specialise, you could choose further study in Business studies, marketing or accounting.

The skills and knowledge developed by the course are highly valued by employers, and would be useful for progression to management training courses in banking, other financial institutions and retailing.
