Why study Business?

Have you ever wondered how Ryanair can sell its plan tickets for a fraction of the price charged by other airlines such as B.A. and still be a highly profitable business? Or what causes once successful companies such as Marks and Spencer and Gap go into decline? What is digital disruption and why have Uber collaborated with Spotify? If you decide to study Business, you will be able to answer these questions and a whole lot more. Studying Business will give you a critical insight into modern effective management. You will also gain an understanding of the role of the entrepreneur and business in society. Business and management is a growing subject at both undergraduate and post graduate level. There are now over a hundred MBA courses on offer in the UK and the numbers of students enrolling on them are increasing. At degree level, many universities offer options to combine Business with a language; in today’s globalised business environment, A Level Business is definitely an option worth considering.
