Business Studies is an excellent subject for so many reasons!

Business Studies helps you to make more informed decisions in the everyday business of living. It gives you a better understanding of the world of work. It encourages you to think about how and why people start up a business and why you too might also consider starting a business in the future

Business Studies is not just recommended for students who wish to start their own business, however, this subject has many other benefits. The following is a list of just some of the things you will learn through your studies:

  • good communication skills such as letter writing and report writing
  • how to collect, organise and record financial information for yourself, your family, for clubs you may be a member of and for businesses you may be employed with in the future
  • what your rights and responsibilities are as a consumer
  • how to calculate your wages when you start working
  • about why our membership of the European Union is so important to our economy

Business Studies helps you to make wise decisions about saving and spending your money now and throughout your life. There are many possible careers stemming from Business Studies after school such as accounting, finance, sales, marketing and management.
