Cambridge O Level 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.
We have updated this syllabus as part of our rolling review programme to make sure that it reflects the latest trends and developments in education and business.
To help you deliver the updated syllabus, we are developing a comprehensive support package including a Teacher guide, scheme of work and Example Candidate Response booklets. These resources will be available via the Teacher Support site.
A range of textbooks prepared by leading educational publishers will also be available.
