The Economics and Business Department aims to provide students with the best possible introduction to these subjects. We provide comprehensive coverage of the A level content and focus on depth of understanding. We strive to inspire our students through interactive lessons which enable each individual to excel and measure success not only by academic grades but also through enjoyment of lessons.
In essence the course is about Business decision making. We start in the Lower Sixth with a look at what the four functional areas are - operations, financial, human resources and marketing and how these areas function within different business environments. The Upper Sixth is purely about decision making and strategic development based on operational, financial, human resources and marketing performance. The A level is based on 20 business theorists, who are used to analyse and evaluate strategies. It is a challenging course that requires strong analytical and evaluative skills.
The Course demonstrates the interrelated nature of business using business models, theories and techniques to support analysis of contemporary business issues and situations.
The content is designed to engage students with topics and issues that are relevant in today's society, through key contemporary developments such as digital technology, business ethics and globalisation topics.
