Anyone with an interest in working for a company or setting up their own business should study Business.
At Oakham Business is taught post-16 at A-level, BTEC and in the IB Diploma. Our courses aim to develop a critical understanding of organisations, the markets they serve and the process of adding value. We look at how organisations are structured and managed and, in particular, how decisions are made in a dynamic global environment.
Our Department comprises a team of six skilled teachers with a range of expertise and industrial experience that we are keen to share with our students. We draw on many different real world examples in our teaching, using a variety of resources, to enliven and demonstrate the subject.
Business-related degrees are the fastest growing university courses in the world due to their usefulness in employment and this trend is borne out by the high numbers of our students who leave Oakham to pursue business-related subjects in Higher Education.
To further our students’ knowledge of different business models and to reinforce what has been covered in lessons, we offer trips to a diverse range of UK businesses and invite outside speakers to present on exciting and relevant topics. The Freddie Groome Enterprise Challenge is an activity that allows students to create and run their own business.
