Business is front page news; the way companies operate is under greater scrutiny than ever before, while TV programmes such as The Apprentice, The Fixer and Dragons' Den have raised the profile of the world of commerce.
Students follow current business developments and apply their understanding through examining and thinking critically about real situations. Topics include the interrelated nature of business activities and how they affect competitiveness, ethical and environmental issues and how technology is changing the way decisions are made.
Business & Management is a popular option for higher education with students obtaining places at a wide range of universities. A key benefit is that Business can be combined with most subjects in joint or combined degrees (e.g. with languages or technology) so students do not have to give up subjects that fascinate them just to pursue a degree with good job prospects.
