Business and its Environment

Business and its Environment

This topic area is concerned with understanding the nature and purpose of business activity and identifying the structures, functions, cultures and objectives of different business organisations. Central to an understanding of business and its internal and external environments is a recognition that the world in which businesses operate is in a constant state of change. The impact of political, economic, social, technological, legal, environmental and ethical factors and how these might influence business activity is considered. The extent to which businesses can respond and adapt to such change is likely to determine their success. 

The Cambridge International AS Level material has its emphasis on an understanding of business concepts and their application to business situations, although some analysis of some issues is expected together with some evaluation. Emphasis should be on the importance of enterprise, business objectives/ structure/size and stakeholders. All sizes of businesses should be considered (including multinationals).
