Business Studies at Haybridge High School and Sixth Form

Course description

At AS Level we cover the characteristics students would need to develop to be successful in business and how new or existing businesses generate their product or service ideas and test them through market research. Students will also consider competition in the market; the economic climate; how the business might be financed and how much revenue an idea might generate. It also introduces students to some basic management tools and models which will be developed in the A2 qualification. At A2, we introduce the student to the world of international business and issues which a company trading internationally would have to consider. Finally, students will be able to assess the current competitiveness of a business through financial and non financial indicators. They will analyse corporate objectives and strategy on the basis of these indicators and on external influences to the business. Students will be required to assess the causes and effects of change on a business and examine how the company could manage risk effectively.
