Business Studies & Economics

Business Studies gives great foundational knowledge of what it’s like to work in a business and the factors that go into making a business successful or not. You’ll learn a lot of transferable skills, like leadership or how to be a team player. It’s also a great way to improve your employability skills. In every business, there will be different departments doing wildly different things, but having a good understanding of how a business functions means you can look at the business as a whole. This perspective is crucial and can help you bring new ideas to the table that might benefit a business.

Economics studies human behaviour and deepens understanding of the world around us. We study how markets work and how they fail whilst seeking to understand the dynamics of change at a micro level (e.g. within an industry) and at a macro level (e.g. within and between countries). You will develop your analytical, numeric, communication, and problem-solving skills. You will improve your cultural awareness whilst debating some of the world’s big questions. You will learn to question traditional thinking and theories in a constantly changing world.
