Course overview

There were an esti­mat­ed 5.5 mil­lion pri­vate sec­tor busi­ness­es in the UK at the start of 2016. Despite the recent eco­nom­ic dif­fi­cul­ties, the trend has been steadi­ly increas­ing in the busi­ness pop­u­la­tion. Today’s glob­al econ­o­my brings with it a wealth of new mar­kets, shrink­ing prof­it mar­gins and increas­ing oper­at­ing expens­es; the need for good busi­ness admin­is­tra­tion has nev­er been greater.

This qual­i­fi­ca­tion has been devel­oped to enable learn­ers to progress into employ­ment in a busi­ness admin­stra­tion role or onto high­er lev­el studies.
