S4-S6 Business & Business Management


SQA’s Business & Business Management qualifications develop enterprise skills and attributes by providing learners with opportunities to study a range of business and organisational contexts.


Learners develop awareness of ways in which society relies on business and other organisations to satisfy our needs, and understanding of how to use business information to interpret and report on overall business performance in a range of contexts. Learners also gain knowledge and understanding of the main effects that external influences, such as economic impact and sustainability, have on organisations.


Within the Business Studies Department the following courses are offered in Business & Business Management:


  • National 3 Business

  • National 4 Business

  • National 5 Business Management

  • Higher Business Management

  • Advanced Higher Business Management


The courses are suitable for students who wish to extend and develop previous study. 


They are also appropriate as a starting point for those who wish to pursue or are interested in a business related career. 


In addition, they can provide a route to a range of employment or training opportunities such as administrative posts in human resources or marketing, as well as a range of skills for life and/or the world of work.
