Who are Leicester College’s business courses for?

The level you study will depend on your previous experience and qualifications. If you are aged 16 to 19 and don’t yet have your English and maths at grade 4 (C) or above, these subjects will be an essential part of your study programme. All courses are designed to give you the skills and knowledge needed to work in the business industry.

Some of the modules you may study with us include: business administration, business environment, finance, marketing, communications, career development, and retail. Higher-level courses go into more depth on these modules and bring together the practical and theoretical elements of management.
