A-level Business

Business is one of the most dynamic subjects you can choose! You will be immersed in the business world exploring and critically reviewing topics from a national and global perspective. 

Why study Business?

By learning about business, you might unlock the entrepreneur inside you as you develop your management, analytical and strategic skills. Studying Business can really give you a sense of direction for your future career, broadening your horizons. There are endless opportunities out there for you from retail management to digital marketing and forensic accountancy to project management. You will learn how the business world works as you develop a good understanding of entrepreneurship and leadership, marketing, financial performance, managing human resources, resource management alongside considering the impact of external influences, competition, change and globalisation on decision making and strategy.

To study at Cowley Sixth Form College, you must have achieved a minimum of five GCSEs or equivalent, graded 9 – 4, across four separate subjects, including GCSE Mathematics and English Language.

In addition, a positive college interview is required.

Assessment is based on three examinations at the end of the second year.

Studying Business will be beneficial whether a student chooses to go straight into employment, an apprenticeship or to university. We hope that some students go on to be the new entrepreneurs of the future and set up their own business.

The course is interesting to me not only because of what is taught during lessons, but what I am left thinking at the end of the day, considering all the little things that might affect X or Y in a company’s operations.
