BUSINESS STUDIES AND ECONOMICS (A Level)

This course is an enjoyable and interesting combination of the two subjects. Its main aim is to teach students how to successfully run a business given the numerous economic challenges it faces, both nationally and internationally. All units are subject to public examination.

The qualification is built around a core unit with an enterprise theme, to enable students to think of a new business idea and how they might research and develop it. Students will think about how their learning applies to their own business idea.

The qualification will introduce students to international business, equipping them either to work in or to manage a business in an international context.

A combined Economics and Business pathway allows achievement in an Advanced Subsidiary or Advanced GCE in Economics and Business

The unit combinations is as follows:

AS level – Unit 1: Developing New Business Ideas

                 Unit 2b: Business Economics

A2 level – Unit 3: International Business

                 Unit 4b: The Wider Economic Environment and Business

An Advanced GCE in Economics and Business with its economics content will give students enhanced career choice and progression opportunities.
