The Edexcel International AS/Advanced Level Business Studies syllabus, regulated by Pearson, builds on the knowledge and skills developed from Edexcel International GCSE Business Studies and other GCSE programmes of study, encouraging creative thinking and problem-solving. A GCSE qualification in Business Studies is not a prerequisite for study of the subject at Advanced Level.
