What will I study?
The A level in Business is structured into four themes and consists of three xternally examined papers at the end of the programme.
Students are introduced to business in Themes 1 and 2 through building knowledge of core business concepts and applying them to business contexts to develop a broad understanding of how businesses work. Breadth and depth of knowledge and understanding, with applications to a wider range of contexts and more complex business information, are developed in Themes 3 and 4, requiring students to take a more strategic view of business opportunities and issues.
Students are encouraged to use an enquiring, critical and thoughtful approach to the study of business, to understand that business behaviour can be studied from a range of perspectives and to challenge assumptions. First hand experience with business experts is on hand via our Expert Programme designed by Howard Lovell, CEO of Deloitte Switzerland where guest speakers can share their experience and mentor your business career.
What could I do afterwards?
The course is good preparation for higher education or full-time employment in any aspect of business. Some students will want to use this knowledge and experience to set up their own successful enterprises.
In addition to the A level pathway requirement of 5 GCSEs including English and Maths, you will need a grade A or B in GCSE Maths or English.
You should enjoy keeping up to date with current affairs and reading the news daily.
