Is there any particular news stories that would help with P1?

Just wondering if there are any key news stories that would particularly benefit P1 to give me a better understanding on which type of key issues I should be looking for in current news?

Hi Claire,

We have a P1 study support video in which two tutors 'digest the news' and discuss the ethical, transparency and corporate governance considerations of the alleged FIFA bribery scandal surrounding the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Please find it on Youtube at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-vRJv17z8A

Hopefully, what they discuss in the video - and their accompanying advice - will help you identify other topical stories of relevance to your P1 studies.

And we cannot recommend enough the value of quality business newspapers in helping to develop an awareness of how real world companies are being affected by real world events, and how they are responding to those events.

Hope this helps.
