Business studies is a rich and varied subject that prepares students for all aspects of working life. No matter what industry students will eventually find themselves in after their learning journey, they will need to work successfully and understand the nature of working in an organisation with other people and clear objectives. An understanding of business and economics gives people a knowledge of how the local, national and global economy works. This has become increasingly important in the modern world and the ability to analyse economic issues, problems and institutions that affect everyday life more and more crucial. Business Studies opens up many options for students at Sixth Form and then university, and there are many courses available with permutations of Business/Management/Administration/ Accounting and Finance. Business and Management graduates typically progress to careers in areas such as business development, marketing, finance and commerce.
