Course summary

**About This Course**On this course, you'll combine a rounded training in economics with a focus on market environments and on business strategy. You'll study microeconomics, macroeconomics, economic modelling and statistics, and you'll also study the economics of corporate finance and of industrial organisation. You’re likely to also choose modules that explore areas such as labour economics or competition in the digital age. You may then choose to explore other business applications of economics, such as the business and economics of sport, or to broaden your knowledge of economics generally by choosing from the full suite of modules on offer in the School of Economics. Combining BSc Business Economics with a placement year, you'll typically spend between 9 and 12 months of your third year in a full-time placement. Although you'll be expected to secure your own work placement, dedicated staff within the School and the Careers Service will support and assist you throughout the process of searching, applying for, and ultimately gaining a position. Furthermore, support will also be provided whilst you are on placement and when you return to complete your studies in your fourth (final) year. Based in the School of Economics, you’ll be taught by a lively, friendly, research-oriented team, committed to teaching excellence and focused on facilitating your growth and success. Our School is globally respected, especially for its pioneering and world-leading work in behavioural economics. Our active research areas also include macroeconomics, competition economics, environmental policy, conflict theory, finance, and labour market studies in education, family and welfare. You’ll be joining a vibrant and diverse community. Our student-led Economics Society is the perfect place to network and socialise with fellow students with shared interests. The Norwich Economic Papers, run by a Student Editorial Board, and the ECO Blog are outlets within which you can publish your work. Our within-school internships enable you to participate directly in frontier research. And our Staff Student Liaison Committee gives you a say in the future direction and every day running of the school. **Overview**BSc Business Economics, combined with a placement year, provides a thorough training in economic analysis with an additional focus on business strategies in the modern marketplace. On this degree, you’ll discover how insights from economics can guide both companies and regulators to increase profits and to serve the interests of consumers. You’ll become an expert in economic and financial modelling techniques and statistical analysis. In your third year, you'll spend 9 to 12 months on a full-time placement, gaining invaluable working experience and employability skills in a relevant area of your choice. You’ll benefit particularly from UEA’s reputation and expertise in the specialisms of industrial organisation and competition policy. **Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change.
