As a broad subject in the social sciences, business studies opens the study field to a focus of specialties such as accountancy, finance, organisation, human resources management and marketing.
Courses in business studies cover a wide array of specialisations but start out broad and allow students to focus on a specific area later on. Students can expect to look at areas like technology, marketing, economics, statistics, accounting and ethics. Degree programs also look at how and why organisations work, as well as the global business environment. Students can expect to gain knowledge of the different areas of a business and how they function together as well as strategy and management skills.
Most business courses also have a practical element, requiring students to complete a final year business project which will involve applying theoretical learning and research skills in real world business communities. Many universities foster contacts with businesses and run internship schemes allowing students to make contacts and gain valuable first-hand experience.
