Business Studies

Business offers students the opportunity to study different types of businesses in different industries. It looks at why they exist, how they are set up and how they are run.

Everyone works in an organisation which is a business of some sort – so studying business is useful as you develop skills that are found in most jobs. 

Business Studies will give you the skills of coming up with business ideas, using maths skills to analyse data, making decisions and developing your communication skills through presentations and reports - all highly transferable skills.

Business Studies can lead into a wide range of careers such as marketing, HR, finance and law. 

Studied alongside maths it can open doors into careers related to finance or running your own business.
