We study Computing because we have grown up in a world where technology is evolving rapidly, creating new subject areas to explore and changing the way people work in every area from medicine and fashion to engineering and economics. Computing allows us to develop project management skills alongside learning how technology works and how it has shaped our lives and our future.
We study Business because it helps to develop many important skills, such as numeracy, literacy, problem solving, information collecting, as well as analytical, evaluative and social skills. You will have the right to vote within a few years time; social and environmental issues already affect you, as does the government’s provision of services. Thus, in dealing with these issues, Business is a hugely important, relevant and useful course to study.
