Business involves managing resources in order to achieve an organisation's objectives. The organisation may be a National Health hospital, a state school, a large multinational company, a small shop or charity. The fundamental issue facing such an organisation is to decide how to make the best use of the limited resources at its disposal. In every business there will be a limited amount of finance, labour, expertise and technology etc. which can be utilised. Management has to decide how to get the most out of these resources.
Business is a subject area that you will use throughout your life regardless of the career you choose. Every working environment is a business environment, be it a hospital or a bank. All have to manage their finances, motivate their employees, market their skills or products etc.
The subject can be taken further by opting for a degree in this area. Alternatively you may opt to seek employment in a related field.
