Course description

The aims of the BTEC Level 3 in Business Studies course are to develop a critical understanding of organisations, the markets they serve and the process of adding value; to create awareness that business behaviour can be studied from the perspectives of a range of stakeholders and the wider business environment concerned with economic, environmental, ethical, government, legal, social and technological issues; finally to equip students with a range of skills, including decision-making and problem-solving in the light of evaluation. By the end of this course students will have a good insight into how businesses operate and be able to apply analytical and evaluative skills to case study scenarios.
