Updated: Wed 14 Mar 2012
In Business Studies students learn the fundamental principles behind running a successful firm, beginning with possible legal structures and sources of finance. From here, they progress through the four key functions of any business - marketing, finance, operations and human resources. Finally, towards the end of the course, the focus shifts to the external influences on business and change management. This is an interesting and practical subject with obvious applications for any budding entrepreneur.
