Business and Economics

Business and Economics

Economics and Business are always in the headlines. In recent years much attention has been directed at issues such as fair trade, business ethics, global warming and the recent recession and recovery. The study of how markets work and knowledge of the national economy is essential to understanding the world in which students will eventually live and work. The relevance of these subjects makes them a fascinating addition to any choice of A Levels.

“It is the greatest good to the greatest number of people which is the measure of right and wrong” Jeremy Bentham.

 

Students develop a greater understanding of financial markets and will be quicker to realise how much the taxman (or woman) is taking from their salary. Economics will equip students with the skills to participate successfully in the increasingly knowledge-based and interdependent global economy of the twenty-first century. Business success and failure is continually evolving in a fascinating way and the department is dynamic in making these ideas come alive in the classroom.

The Business and Economics Curriculum will expose students to new terminology, concepts and current issues. The intent is for students to develop a strong business vocabulary, critical and analytical thinking, and decision-making skills. These will be developed by working on their own, and in groups, studying real-life businesses and monitoring the Africa and global economies. 
Topics you can expect to study in Business include Marketing, Human Resources, Finance and Operations.
