Business Studies and Economics are taught at GCSE and A Level. A large proportion of pupils go on to study Business or a related subject at university.
As well as using course text books and fulfilling all the written demands of the course, pupils opting for these subjects are expected to closely follow current affairs, read a daily newspaper and The Economist, watch business programmes on television and use appropriate websites. The aim is to ensure that pupils become actively involved in the subject and to encourage them to think about identifying and solving business and economic problems. These are constantly changing 'living subjects' that are both challenging and exciting.
