Business and Economics

Subject Overview

In today’s ever-changing business environment and globalised world, here at Kent College we try to make sure our Business and Economics students gain the necessary tools needed to succeed in their post-A Level and IBDP careers. Our highly regarded department offers a stimulating learning environment in which our students can master their critical thinking, decision-making, analytical and evaluative skills. In doing so, students extend their intercultural understanding and open-mindedness, developing attitudes necessary to respect a range of viewpoints in tandem.

We have an ever-expanding cohort and 5 different pathways which students can study. We offer the traditional pathways, such as A-level Business and Economics, as well as IBDP Business Management and Economics. We also offer a more empirical pathway, the Cambridge Technical Diploma in business studies.
