Business Studies

Everything in life involves Business.  Think of the jacket you are wearing and then what businesses made it possible for you to be wearing it right now?  The obvious ones are the shop and the manufacturing plant but what about the cotton growers?  The label makers?  The delivery company?  Health and Safety?  Even the companies that manage the finances of the business are involved.  Thinking about all these processes and people allows you to understand what iGCSE Business is about.  Business is a major part of everyone's life and anybody who has a good idea about how businesses work are at an immediate advantage.
