ABOUT THE COURSE

A Level Business explores how business works, how to start your own business, and common problems and solutions that arise in the world of enterprise. You will learn how to analyse and evaluate the performance of a business in order to make recommendations, both short and long-term, as well as understanding how and why business decisions are made using quantitative and qualitative tools. 

This course will assist you in considering the issues and problems arising in businesses, from a variety of different perspectives, including the challenges involved in starting a business, how firms organise the production of goods and services, how businesses engage in financial planning and decision-making and the ways in which firms market their products, influence sales and compete effectively.
