Business Studies is a subject which offers students the chance to relate theory to the ‘real working world’. Within the Business Studies department we aim to develop a critical understanding of organisations and their behavior.
We want students to study different perspectives and acquire a range of skills, including decision-making, thinking and problem solving through analysis and evaluation.
