Business is a dynamic and interesting subject that enables students to enhance their commercial awareness and develop a wide range of business related analytical and entrepreneurial skills.
They will investigate different types of organisations, identify investment opportunities and evaluate how markets affect business performance. The subject enables students to understand real world decision making processes and to critically evaluate the external and internal influences on businesses.
