This generic A level is applicable to every avenue of industry and will complement any degree course taken at university. It gives the students an insight into the world of business and knowledge that is relevant for careers in both the public and private sectors.

 We aim to offer a subject that gives students an in-depth understanding of all business operations and an awareness of the various disciplines and perspectives involved in the process of decision making. This gives an excellent foundation for students hoping to gain employment immediately after A levels as well as for those planning to continue their studies at university.

As part of this course students study the exciting areas of marketing management, finance and personnel and gain some insight into how to make strategic decisions that shape the future of big corporations. The course encourages independent learning and in particular students are expected to use their own research to develop a greater understanding of large, multi-national organisations.
