Why Study Business Studies?

Everything in life involves Business. Think about that new top you bought last week and then think of what businesses made it possible for you to be wearing it right now?

The obvious ones are the Shop and the Manufacturing plant but what about the Cotton growers? the Label makers? The Delivery company? Health & Safety? Even the companies that manage the finances of all those businesses. Thinking about all those processes and people allows you begin to understand about what Business Studies is all about.

Business is a major part of everyones life and anybody who has a good idea about how businesses work are at an immediate advantage in the future.

Why Study Business Studies?

Many people take it at A-level without taking it at GCSE, so it shouldn't discourage you. But anyone with a general interest in business structures, ethics, the economy, finance, marketing, human resources, management, etc. will enjoy the course. A Level Business can lead to degree courses in business, managment, acounting, finance and other related subjects.
