You’ll start by learning the basics of business: What are the various types of business? What is a limited company? What is a partnership? Why do some businesses need to employ more managers than others? Who and what influences what a business does? What resources do you need to run a business? What is marketing and why is it so important? Why might you like certain adverts more than others? This qualification is assessed predominantly through coursework with some external assessment.
The Extended Diploma in Business has been devised with the help of higher education institutions, professional bodies (such as the CIPD and the Chartered Institute of Management) and major businesses such as the John Lewis Partnership and Barclays Bank to meet the needs of students wanting to develop a rewarding career in tomorrow’s businesses.
