Business Studies

So you want to eat steak?

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime. Teach a man to create an artificial shortage of fish and he will eat steak.

We would argue this is the most relevant subject you will ever experience! Not everyone is going to be an entrepreneur and nor do they need to set up in business. However, wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be surrounded by and/or working for a business. So why not get ahead of the game?

Our course analyses UK business operations, but the scope of learning is global: from China’s management success to the credit crunch of the Western world, from the BP oil spill to the exploding market of online dating. We are absolutely current. Reinforcing our global perspective, we have a strong contingent of international students.

Business Studies is a dynamic subject and our diverse Business Studies department has energetic, experienced practitioners, including industry experts. They work in new, state-of-the-art Business Studies classrooms, where Old Brentwoods and numerous parent entrepreneurs regularly contribute to our lessons.

And if all of this isn’t enough, our students have the opportunity to go to New York and experience one of the most vibrant business communities in the world, first hand.
