Now is a really great time to study Business as the business curriculum is very dynamic, due to the world being very dynamic. We look at a range of topics such as human resources, marketing, operations and the economy. The course uses case studies to give students the ability to apply their subject knowledge in the real world. Students are encouraged to immerse themselves in the world of business outside of class and keep up to date with business and consumer news.
Through the study of business students will apply knowledge and understanding to business decision making, by developing problem-solving and decision-making skills relevant to business. They will actively investigate, analyse and evaluate business opportunities and issues and make justified decisions using both qualitative and quantitative data, including its selection, interpretation, analysis and evaluation, and the application of appropriate quantitative skills.
To be successful in Business, students need to give accurate subject knowledge for a specific business scenario, this means they need to be able to link different areas of subject knowledge and decide what the most important factor is for the specific business situation they are given. Being able to justify from two options and evaluate different options are essential for the study of business and extended writing tasks feature quite heavily on the business courses at both GCSE and A level.
