Advanced Business

This qualification comprises of the Level 3 Cambridge Technical in Business Accounting Pathway, which has been developed to meet the changing needs of the sector, and prepare you for the challenges you’ll face in Higher Education or employment. You will learn how a business might evolve. From a small start-up business to a large multinational organisation, you will consider a range of different business types and gain an understanding of how the choice of business type might affect the objectives that are set.

You will also look at the internal workings of businesses, including their internal structure and how different functional areas work together. You will also explore ways in which businesses respond to changes in their economic, social and technological environment; and gain an appreciation of the influence different stakeholders can have upon a business.

Upon completion of the programme you can progress onto year two and top up to the Level 3 Diploma, which meets entry requirements in its own right for those who wish to progress to higher education, apprenticeship, or employment.

"When I attended an Open Evening at the University Centre South Devon I was initially unsure which direction I wanted to take.  When I spoke to a tutor about my goals, strengths and weaknesses, they guided me to a degree in business and management and I never looked back."Charlotte McGowan
