AS Business at John Colet School

Course description

Whatever you do in the future, the chances are it will involve some business! Business and enterprise skills are becoming more and more important as research says that as one of today’s young adults you are likely to have 4 or 5 careers in your working life, compared to 1 or 2 which was the case 25 years ago. This means that whatever your plans are now, you need to have the flexibility and skills to meet that challenge.

The new AS level in Business requires students to think strategically and make decisions from the viewpoint of individual departments within a business and the whole organisation. Students will learn how to use and interpret data to inform their decisions and how the local and wider business environment affects business performance and decision making.
