Course summary

The Foundation Year in Business is offered as an entry route to a business degree for those who don't yet meet the entry requirements for degree-level study. The Foundation Year in Business is taught by the same lecturing staff who teach on our degree courses and you are taught in small group seminars, workshops and lectures. You will be able to develop transferable skills in business, communication and problem-solving. You will enrol on a four-year course, which includes the one-year foundation course. If you complete this year successfully you progress directly onto one of our three-year degree courses in this subject area.


Our course will dynamically introduce you to economic theory and its core concepts so you gain a deep knowledge of economic forces like wealth and income creation, allocation of resources, production and consumption of goods, alongside others. A BA in economics can lead to a wide range of careers, including roles like business analysts, financial policy advisors and economic consultants.

Build your analytical and quantitative skills

You'll be taught by active researchers, widely published in the areas of microeconomics, behavioural and experimental economics, and econometrics. You'll have access to a number of cutting-edge business resources which include the Chartered Management Institute's Management Direct Resource Hub, Datastream, Bloomberg financial software, and our state-of-the-art Financial Markets Lab.

Our economics course will equip you with subject-specific as well as transferable skills that are highly sought-after across different industries. The analytical and quantitative skills you'll develop are desirable by both the private and public sectors. Combine that with our industry links and the network you will develop during your course, and a fulfilling career awaits.


You will be assessed through essays, exams, quizzes, reports and group projects. You will receive informal feedback from your tutor in seminars and after class tests.


Economists with analytical and quantitative skills are highly sought after by the private and public sector, big and small firms, large international agencies, schools and universities, economic policy makers, and social organisations. Students exiting the programme could have enter careers such as:

  • Business Analyst
  • Economic Consultant
  • Energy Research Officer
  • Environmental Economist
  • Financial Policy Advisor
  • Graduate Economist
  • Microeconomic Analyst
  • Policy Analyst
  • Trainee Dealer

An Economics degree builds both subject specific and transferable skills, making it an ideal study choice for launching a career across both the public and private sectors: from banking and finance, to economics consultancy. Economics graduates have progressed to work for leading companies, including: John Lewis, Nokia, O2, World Trade Group, Cyprus Government, IBM, Halifax, Natwest, Canadian High Commission, Arwens and Fratelli.
