Our Business A Level course teaches students about how businesses make decisions, how they set their strategies, and why some businesses fail and some succeed.

An understanding about the workings of this sector of the economy will stand students in good stead for their lives after school. The material studied would be useful for candidates intending to pursue careers in any area of business.

The course helps to develop a critical understanding about the internal workings of a business, and of its role in the external environment. Students are taught about the effects of business behaviour from the perspective of a range of stakeholders within society, and generate an understanding of issues that affect a variety of organisations.

During the course students are introduced to a number of business theories and are expected to apply them to real world examples and case studies.  They acquire a range of skills including decision-making and problem solving in the light of evaluation and, where appropriate, the quantification and management of information.
