Subject Overview

The study of business is a dynamic discipline that encompasses many aspects of human ingenuity and enterprise. The scope of business studies is very broad, and includes (among others) the role of management, the analysis of leadership, entrepreneurship, globalization and the information age. Formally, management is generally agreed as the formal task of DECISION and COMMAND, setting and programming OBJECTIVES, motivating and aligning EFFORT, coordinating and controlling ACTIVITIES, developing and assigning TALENT, accumulating and applying KNOWLEDGE, amassing and allocating RESOURCES, building and nurturing RELATIONSHIPS, and balancing AND meeting STAKEHOLDER DEMANDS. Whereas the notion of “leadership” certainly encompasses the ability to shape the attitudes & behaviour of others, it is nevertheless a much more nebulous concept to pin down because leadership problems are always unique and require evaluation of many criteria to come to decisions. In the later part of the twentieth century, the first world economy transitioned from product-driven to service-driven. Consequently, since the 1980s, corporations have been operating in a post-industrial and increasingly complex, multi-faceted business environment; an information age in a globally driven knowledge economy, which requires new capabilities for competitive success. Only those organisations that are able to adapt, manipulate and ultimately exploit and manage their knowledge resources are likely to be operating from a position of competitive advantage. The Europe Tutorial Academy currently offers business coaching courses in general business studies, Entrepreneurship and Business English (also available as an Adult Study Retreat, post-COVID restrictions); and pre-university level online tutoring and enrichment workshops.
