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 our 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.
