University of Sheffield has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Discovering how these two subjects complement each other can be a lot of fun. The experience also expands your horizons and gives you more career options. It’s a dual honours course, which means you will spend roughly half your time in the Department of Economics. There are optional modules in both subjects and you can still go on a work placement for a year if you like. The Sheffield University Management School is triple-accredited (by AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS) which puts it among the top one per cent of management schools in the world. It’s also one of the biggest departments in the university, with students from every part of the world, so you can expect a vibrant, multicultural atmosphere. Our graduates go on to work for the usual big names such as KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers, and in the public sector. Others are successful entrepreneurs and consultants.
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.
