Why should I take Business?

The last two decades have seen a revolution in attitudes to entrepreneurial activity and the development of globalisation.

As a result, Business has become one of the fastest growing A levels, offering pupils an opportunity to find out how real businesses organise themselves to achieve a wide range of objectives in a highly competitive global economy.

What will I learn?

You will learn about risk, what makes a successful entrepreneur, financing your business, marketing, human resource management, organising business operations, strategic decision making, investment appraisal and the global environment, and much, much more.

A level Business is non-vocational, despite the fact that it uses real business case studies as its foundation.

Do you see yourself as the next Sir Alan Sugar? …or maybe a Dragon?

Are you interested in running your own business?

What about going global and following in the footsteps of Sir Richard Branson and Virgin?

What help will I get?

Business is taught by experienced teachers with a track record of success. Delivery is via taught lessons using current business examples, backed up with the latest texts and online resources. The Department works with the DCS Business Club to provide pupils the opportunity to hear from successful people in business and to source examples of aspects of the specification in applied settings.
