International Baccalaureate Diplomas – IB Business Management — Overview

Alongside one of our creative UAL Level 3 Extended Diplomas in Art & Design, equivalent to three A-Levels, all International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (IBCP) students will also complete two IB Diploma subjects, each broadly equivalent to either an A-Level or AS-Level depending on whether they are studied at Higher or Standard Level.

Students can study two IB Diploma subjects, from English Literature, Film, History, Business Management, Mathematics, Environmental Systems & Societies, Visual Arts, or Psychology.

IB Diploma subjects will be taught at Higher or Standard Level. All IB Diplomas and the Levels that they are taught are subject to demand - for this reason, applicants must list three IB Diplomas on their application, in order of preference.

IB BUSINESS MANAGEMENT

Business Management explores the context of business and operating systems in place in companies and organisations, also investigating logistics and operations.

Through research and discussion, students will gain an understanding of different cultural perspectives in business, focusing on themes of change, culture, ethics, globalisation, innovation and strategy. This will support their creative practice through understanding commerce and its impact on local and global communities.

Assessment = Two exam papers (75%) and one coursework essay (25%).

Please contact David Hasell (dhasell@pca.ac.uk) if you have any questions about IB Business Management.
