Student View

“Business GCSE prepares you for the world of work and you learn about all aspects of business. I hope to study business at A-Level and at university and take a year out to work and get experience.”

“I really enjoy business; it provides a better understanding of how businesses are run, from operations to people management”.

“Studying Business is based on ‘real’ organisations and applying theory within those situations”.
