The Business course will enable candidates to develop a critical understanding of how organisations operate. Our students will consider all the internal workings of businesses including the management of functions such as marketing, human resources and finance. The course will cover the study of organisational structure, culture and objectives, through to an understanding of the micro and macro-economy and how they affect businesses – supply and demand, market structures, inflation, economic growth, interest rates and international trade and globalisation.
In addition to a thorough body of knowledge, it will allow our students to be analytical, rigorous and critical, and will also allow them to experience practical decision-making and problem-solving. It is also advisable that candidates are comfortable with using numbers, due to the finance and accounting, and also are comfortable with use of English given the amount of terminology used. Therefore we suggest GCSE requirements for prospective students B grade or above in English and Mathematics.
Monmouth School for Boys and Monmouth School for Girls currently follow a different specification.
