23 Jul Business Studies: What to study?
The ICB’s business studies programmes are designed to give you the most relevant, practical and useful knowledge and skills around. This means that whether you’re undertaking a bookkeeping course, accounting course or business management course, you can be certain that you’ll be equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to make you employable and valuable.
When you look at the programmes in details, you’ll see that some subjects appear in all of them. These are the courses that give you the most essential skills no matter what programme you choose. We update our course structure and content on the 1st of April each year to keep everything relevant. This means you can hit the ground running at work with what you’ve learnt, with knowledge that is completely up to date.
The ICB’s programmes are divided into different levels. When you complete just a few subjects successfully you’ll be awarded an ICB Programme Certificate and can move up to the next level. It’s really motivating to have such achievable goals! And you can do it all at your own pace. Before you know it, you will advance to our highest accounting qualification.
Need to press pause?
If life responsibilities or finances mean you need to take a short break from your studies, you can. Simply pick up where you left off when you’re ready to start again. Just don’t leave it too long as the subject material does get updated every year.
