Business Studies AS/A Level

Business Studies AS/A Level

The first year of the 2 year linear A level and the standalone AS course are identical. In this first year you will study the key areas that businesses need to consider, e.g. marketing, accounts, operations management, people, objectives and strategy, as well as the many external factors affecting business. In addition, you will learn the principles behind each part of a business and look at companies and products that you know.

In Year 2 of the linear A level, the emphasis changes. Building on the first year, you will use analytical and evaluative techniques to develop business strategy. You will also learn about how businesses operate in a dynamic and changing world.

Progression

The Business AS and A Level are excellent choices of qualification to enable further study of a related degree at university. Business is one of the largest and fastest growing subjects at Higher Education and this course provides an excellent foundation for degree courses.

They are also welcomed by employers, as both courses encourage students to understand the Business world around them and allow for the development of many transferable skills. Our students have successfully entered various areas of Business direct from college such as Marketing, Management, Human Resources, Accounting and Administration.
