Businesses supply many of the goods and services we consume in our daily lives, so they have a vital role in society. Half of everything produced by Swedish companies is exported abroad, which is important for Sweden’s wealth. In a global economy, Swedish companies face competition from almost the entire world. Business Studies will give you tools to help businesses remain competitive on a global market.
Companies are surrounded by a society in constant change. Business Studies covers entrepreneurship and innovation. Resourcefulness is necessary for new companies to be founded and for existing companies to survive. Entrepreneurship and innovation are therefore important areas of Business Studies. You will develop your ability to help companies survive by finding financing and making them profitable.
