Apprenticeships to consider if your favourite subject is business studies

If your favourite subject is business studies and you are thinking of pursuing it further, there is a broad range of careers open to you.


Business studies opens up a vast range of career opportunities for you. In fact, The Apprenticeship Guide dedicates an entire industry sector to it.

Among the career options available are administration, project management, professional development, management, customer services, and facilities management.

Of course, business studies teaches you important skills that are applicable in almost every possible career, so don’t hesitate to consider other possibilities.

Apprenticeships that are appropriate for a graduate of business studies will develop your skills further in organisation, teamwork and communications, among many others, as well as ICT since you’ll likely use a computer for the majority of your work.
