There are many different types of business, such as shops, hairdressers, solicitors, manufacturers, corporations etc., and each will be set up differently as an organisation. You may have heard the terms: limited liability companies, partnerships or sole traders and each of these serve a purpose and have been set up in this way for a particular reason. Each will follow a process to ensure that their business is successful and studying A Level Business will enable you to gain an in-depth knowledge of what makes these businesses work.
As you work through your day to day tasks, have you ever wondered what was involved in getting a loaf of bread to your table or why your mobile phone bill has increased. All aspects of business will have a reflection on the end product and determine the cost of products or services.
Working through your A Level Business course, you will learn how to set the price of stock and be able to work out if more goods produced, means more profit or less profit. Automatically, you would assume that the more goods you can sell, the more profit you would make for your business, but this is not necessarily the case as you will find when you calculate the breakeven point.
You may believe that being a manager is enough to enable you to manage staff and organise operations within the company but if you have no management and leadership skills, then there will be little confidence in your decision making and lack of moral within the organisation.
Whether you own a small independent shop or a chain of shops, you will be expected to develop a strategy to outsell your competitors and once you know how to analyse the strengths and weaknesses of a business, you will be halfway there.
Many learners may start with IGCSE Business, in order to form the basis of the business environment but even if you have not studied business at GCSE level, you will still be able to take advantage of this comprehensive course. Many learners will also study A Level Economics, which will delve deeper into the labour markets and the difference between success and failure.
Are you ready to enter the lucrative world of business?
