Course Synopsis
This Ascentis Quality Assured Level 3 Professional Diploma course has been designed to provide students with an understanding of how businesses work; how the world around them affects decision-making within a business; what leads to change and how businesses respond to these issues; and the range of perspectives that can be taken on business activities.

It also helps develop a range of important and transferable skills: data skills; presenting arguments and making recommendations on the basis of the available evidence; and problem solving.

Students will study a broad variety of business related topics ranging from finance to operations management to provide them with a sound understanding of the subject. This course is ideal for those hoping to study a business related course at higher or further education.
