What skills will I need to be successful?

You will need an interest in the wider world and a curiosity about the world of business. You will need to have a confident grasp of basic maths and be able to articulate your recommendations when reflecting on the options available to a business.

Where can it take me in the future?

If you’d like to study business, finance or management at university, A Level Business provides an excellent foundation. The skills you learn are transferable across a broad range of subjects and careers. Whatever you choose to do in the future, you’ll find that the things you learn in this course will help. For example, you’ll probably work with lots of different people, so knowledge of motivational theory will help you to work well with others and help them achieve their potential. You might have ambitious plans to start your own business. If that’s the case, you’ll find the marketing and finance topics particularly useful.
