    I'm going to start IB in Aug 2004, I'm trying to decide between Econs and Bus Studies. What are the pros and cons of them? I've heard Econs is less interesting but at the moment I find Bus Studies GSCE quite easy and not stimulating enough. All opinions are welcome.

    Economics

    Pros:I find it more intellectual and more stimulating. Universities regard this much better than Business studies

    Cons:Perhaps harder to learn than business studies e.g. lots of curves and theories

    Business Studies

    Prosasier? Has elements of lets say accounting, which economics wont touch on , which maybe you are more interested in

    Cons:Less regarded by universities, ie more vocational.
