Business studies

The aims of the Business Studies department is to encourage students to be inspired, moved and changed by studying a broad, coherent, satisfying and worthwhile course of study. The course allows candidates to gain an insight into related sectors such as economics and accounting. It prepares students to make informed decisions about further learning opportunities and career
choices. 

The students engage actively in the study of business in order to develop as effective and independent
learners and as critical and reflective thinkers with enquiring minds. They use an enquiring, critical approach to distinguish facts and opinions, to build arguments and make informed judgements. 
Students develop and apply their knowledge, understanding and skills to contemporary issues in a range of local, national and global contexts and appreciate the range of perspectives of different stakeholders in relation to business and economic activities. They  consider the extent to which business and economic activity can be ethical and sustainable and will appreciate diversity and recognise similarities and differences of attitudes and cultures in society.
