Teaching and learning
The Cambridge IGCSE (9-1) Business Studies syllabus develops learners' understanding of business activity in the public and private sectors, and the importance of innovation and change. Learners find out how the major types of business organisation are established, financed and run, and how their activities are regulated. Factors influencing business decision-making are also considered, as are the essential values of cooperation and interdependence.
Learners not only study business concepts and techniques but also enhance related skills such as numeracy and enquiry. The syllabus provides both a foundation for further study at Cambridge International A Level and an ideal preparation for the world of work.
This syllabus is graded from 9 to 1 but is otherwise the same as Cambridge IGCSE Business Studies (0450). You will find past papers and other resources on the web page for Cambridge IGCSE Business Studies (0450); these may be useful for teaching Cambridge IGCSE (9-1) Business Studies (0986).
Cambridge IGCSE (9-1) Business Studies (0986) is available in the June and November series for schools in the UK only.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
