Businesses shape the world we live in. Some businesses are iconic and have become part of our daily vocabulary; for example, we say to “Google” something, meaning to search for something on the internet. The power these super-brands have had on our lives is immense and every business wants to achieve this level of impact. The GCSE Business course gives an insight into the different functional areas of a business from finance to marketing.
