Course summary

Be the change that employers seek - learn how social and economic environments affect organisations and how to make positive changes.

Develop key skills in economics, accounting and management with a strong vocational focus.

As part of your course you’ll:

  • Explore the principles of economics and how they apply to business
  • Gain both a theoretical and practical understanding of the economic decisions faced by business managers
  • Develop the ability to analyse the economic and social environments in which those decisions are taken

If you take a paid work placement in your third year you’ll develop and enhance your employability skills. Past students have completed placements with companies including Mercedes Benz, Price Waterhouse Cooper and high street retail banks.

We will encourage you to enhance your entrepreneurial skills through a range of national student competitions such as the IBM University Business Challenge.

TEACHING & LEARNING

Independent study is a crucial part of learning at university and you will be required to undertake many hours of self-directed research and reading, and preparation and writing of assessments. Your course is delivered through a number of modules, which will help you to plan your time and establish a study routine. Outside of your lectures, workshops and tutorials, a range of support is available to assist with your independent study. Our subject-specific librarians will be on hand to direct you to the specialist learning and study-skill resources. You’ll also be assigned an academic advisor to give you tailored feedback and support.

CAREER PROSPECTS

You will possess the skills and knowledge essential for a career as an economist, or you could enter another area of business such as management or accountancy. You will be primed for a trainee management position or company graduate programme that will put you on the fast track to a leadership role. Our graduates are working in industries as diverse as banking and car manufacturing.
