Business Studies is a skills-based subject which tests the students’ ability to use their own knowledge of the business world.
Students will develop an understanding of the role and purpose of business activity in the public and private sectors, and the importance of innovation and change. They will learn how the major types of business organisation are set up, financed and operated and how their activities are regulated.
