Have you ever wondered how Ryanair can sell its plane 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 Gap to go into decline?
Why study Business?
Why and how has Urban Outfitters managed to increase prices whilst maintaining busy shops and cash tills? What has driven Apple’s phenomenal growth but a recent wobble in share prices? How will the current economic environment shape business strategy, plans and finance from here?
A Level Business is a useful and pragmatic subject that gives a thorough understanding of the way in which businesses in the world today are run. You will gain an understanding of business in a range of contexts and will develop a critical understanding of organisations and their ability to meet society's needs and wants. You will build a range of skills including decision making, problem solving and critical analysis and you will be exposed to some of the ethical dilemmas and responsibilities faced by organisations and individuals. By the end of the course, you will have all the basics to set up your own business or continue to study Business and management at undergraduate and post graduate level, perhaps with a side hustle to help fund your studies and lifestyle.
