Course description

A Level Business

This course can be studied as part of the A Level business pathway at Reading College.

This course will provide you with a good overview of business as a whole, with a particular focus on enterprise. You will also learn about four business areas: marketing, finance, people management and operations. Your study will also involve strategic thinking about business influences and setting up a small business. 

You will study operational aspects of a business such as human resources, marketing, finance and accounting. You will develop analytical and critical skills, as well as a creative approach to problem solving.

You could progress on to further study of a business-related subject at higher education level or alternatively enter the employment market. Degree courses can include business and management, business and finance, or business and accounting.
