IGCSE Business Studies

The IGCSE Business Studies syllabus develops students’ understanding of business activity in the public and private sectors, and the importance of innovation and changes.
Students learn how the major types of business organisation are established, financed and run, and how their activities are regulated. Factors influencing business decision-making are also considered, as are the essential values of cooperation and interdependence.

AS & A Level Business Studies

The Business Studies syllabus enables students to understand and appreciate the nature and scope of business, and the role it plays in society.
The syllabus covers economic, environmental, ethical, governmental, legal, social and technological issues, and encourages a critical understanding of organisations, the markets they serve and the process of adding value.

Students examine the management of organisations and, in particular, the process of decision-making in a dynamic external environment.
