What A-levels do you need to study business?
To study a business degree at university, it's important that your A-level line-up ticks admissions tutors’ boxes…
The following requirements also apply to degrees in accountancy, finance, banking and management.
Essential A-levels (or equivalent)
- None (very occasionally maths for management degrees).
Useful A-levels (or equivalent)
- Business studies (AGCE, National and Diploma).
Other typical A-levels taken by current business students
- IT and computing.
- General studies.
Do note that many degrees will be open to you whichever A-levels you choose. Some courses will be happy with a subject just at AS-level while some courses may want the full A-level - something to check before you finalise your A-level choices in Year 12.
