Business & Management
Business and Management drives the world economy; it creates jobs, growth and wealth and helps to improve our quality of life and living standards. The Department’s aim is to provide a thorough understanding of the techniques and practices that lie behind making informed business decisions and so equip pupils with an invaluable life skill.
Studying Business will provide an in depth understanding of how the world works which can contribute to both personal success and career satisfaction. It augments the study of many other disciplines and widens pupils understanding making them career ready for their future in the ‘real world’. Indeed Business and Management is one of the most popular subjects chosen by Carthusians for study at university either on its own, jointly across the Arts and Social Science disciplines, or to add breadth to the study of Science and Mathematics.
