Course summary

Overview

Study business theories and models present in contemporary organisations and discover how national and global issues can affect the performance of a business. On this course, you will learn to apply this knowledge to solve complex real-world problems.

In your second year you can choose from a variety of modules, such as Economics of Financial Markets and Institutions, which will provide you with a thorough understanding of financial systems. The analytical and critical evaluation skills developed alongside your studies of economics will deepen your understanding of how to support successful businesses.

During your time at DMU you will also have an opportunity to add an international dimension to your studies by taking part in a short-term overseas visit. Business Management and Economics students recently visited Berlin, which gave them the opportunity to apply economic theory to analyse the benefits and costs of European integration.

Teaching and assessment

You will be taught through a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, group work and self-directed study. Assessment is through coursework (presentations, essays and reports) and usually an exam or test, which is typically weighted as follows in your first year:

  • Exam: 35%
  • Coursework: 65%

These assessment weightings are indicative only. The exact weighting may vary depending on option modules chosen by students and teaching methods deployed by the academic member of staff each year. Indicative assessment weighting and assessment type per module are shown as part of the module information. Again these are based on the current academic session.

Graduate careers

Our Business Management and Economics degree helps to open up a wide range of career opportunities for graduates in areas such business, finance and the civil service.

Since the global financial crisis of 2007/08, economics has been at the centre stage of policy analysis, with sound economic skills and competencies being sought-after in many areas.

Our graduates have gone on to careers in globally renowned organisations such as Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, KPMG, and PwC, working in a variety of roles including operations analyst, business analyst, audit associate, and financial analyst.
