The majority of news is business-related. If you enjoy watching The Apprentice or Dragons’ Den, or feel that you could give them a run for their money, then a Business Studies BTEC could be for you. If you want to set up on your own, work for a local business or see the world with a multinational corporation, then Business Studies could get you there.
BTEC Business students tend to apply for apprenticeships or go on to further study. However, with a Business qualification, the door is opened to many jobs and careers.
