The department has also enjoyed success in a number of external competitions including Bank of England Target 2.0, the Stock Market Challenge held by Reading University and the Marketing Challenge held by Surrey County Council.

As a direct result of the growth in student numbers, the department was split into two separate areas for A Level courses and Vocational courses.
