A characteristic of A-level Business is that it draws upon evidence and examples from the real world. There is ample opportunity to explore existing businesses and find out what makes them successful. Students also learn why businesses have failed.
GCSE Maths and English, both at grade 4 or above, will be necessary.
A keen interest in Business is also a great advantage. Many students study Business across the world. As a popular subject, the competition for exciting and fulfilling jobs is intense. You need to work hard to stand out.
Business is what we call an ‘Open Option Subject’. All industries need business minds and commercial skills. Careers in music, drama, television and sports are available to individuals with a good, sound grasp of commerce. This is alongside other rewarding careers in industry, travel and education. One ex-Bosworth Business pupil is now a famous lifestyle and fashion vlogger.
