Where can business take me?

An A level in business can lead to a wide range of op3ons post 18. Many students choose to study for a degree in business and can choose a

course which will allow them to specialise in an area of business that they most enjoy, such as finance or marke3ng. Many degrees now

combine business with a modern foreign language which would give an opportunity to study overseas. It’s a great founda3on for a higher

level appren3ceship in accoun3ng and finance or project management. Also provides a general feel and understanding of the commercial

world.
