Overview

You'll also learn about the external environment and how the economic and political context helps shape how businesses respond to global challenges. Using a blend of text, audio, video and interactive online activities, you’ll develop vital skills for study and for work in business, public or voluntary sector organisations. Particular attention is paid to developing your critical thinking skills. You will also be introduced to mind mapping as a technique to help you express your ideas and creativity.

Other requirements

General requirements

  • This module is for anyone who wants a general overview of business studies – to learn more about the world of business and how it operates. 
  • It makes as few assumptions as possible about what you already know about business or about your experience of formal academic study. 
  • However, as this is an OU level 2 module and if you have no previous experience of studying business, it is strongly recommended that you first study An introduction to business and management (B100).
