Our Approach to the Business Studies Curriculum
We aim to provide academic Business Studies education in a challenging, caring and supportive environment. Our aim is to broaden the knowledge and understanding of students of the business world and to develop within them an appreciation of the influences and constraints within which businesses work. By acquiring an understanding of these issues and considering them in a national and international context, students will be able to develop their own values and standards. This will better prepare them for the workplace and help them to make informed choices about their future careers.
The department aims to:
- enable students to appreciate and be critical of the business world, its influences and implications
- To generate interest, enthusiasm and confidence in the subject, to stimulate curiosity and enjoyment of Business Studies
- To set high standards for students, to develop a variety of desirable and marketable personal qualities and prepare them for the next step in education or for employment.
