Why Study Business Development?

Business development has different meanings to different people. However, the concept could be loosely defined as ‘the collective efforts and activities that support the growth, development and evolution of an organisation’. Ultimately, business development is about taking a business from where it is today to where it could be tomorrow. This is achieved through new product development, market research, competitor analysis, strategic product pricing, powerful marketing and so on. Business development is about maximising appeal to existing customers, while expanding into new markets and bringing new customers on board. For those who succeed in business development, career opportunities on a global basis are wide open. If you’re ready to get started, Oxford Home Study Centre is open for business right now!

Oxford Home Study Centre is proud to offer a complete range of business courses to suit all experience and skill levels. This advanced Level 4 Business Development Diploma takes place over a series of six modules, each concluding with an online assessment for submission to your assigned tutor:

Module 5. Branding and Packaging

The fifth module discusses the extent to which product packaging contributes to the success of both the product and the brand it represents.
