Igcse Business Studies Coursework

The Oxford Open Learning course is designed to meet the requirements of the Edexcel 4BS0 specification in 2018 and the 4BS1 specification from 2019. It is divided into five modules, as follows:

  • Business activity and the changing environment
  • Human resources
  • Accounting and finance
  • Production
  • Marketing

This course concerns the business aspects of organisations within their economic, political and social contexts. Business Studies involves the investigation of how business adds value by organizing the production of goods and services. The performance of business is studied from a range of perspectives. Using case studies, your course ensures that you have knowledge, understanding and experience of the real world of business organisations. The use of case study materials also requires that you use a variety of methods to analyse and evaluate this evidence and thus make reasoned judgements in the context of real business scenarios.

Module One, Business Activity and the Changing Environment provides an overarching set of concepts, explores the Ownership and Control of Business, and investigates the Aims and Objectives of Business.

The first module provides a context within which the remainder of the Subject Content is to be studied. There is no optional content and the remaining four modules, Human Resources, Accounting and Finance, Production, and Marketing, focus on these aspects of business. It is important to remember that all aspects of business are closely inter-related, and that some lessons, for example, that on Location, may also be regarded as an important element of another module  (In the case of Location, this links closely with Production, as does Growth).  Be prepared to review earlier lessons when answering assignment questions.
