Course summary

How can companies remain competitive in a crowded marketplace? How do they decide how much to invest in research and development? How do regulatory systems impact profit margins, innovation and growth? Our BSc Industrial Economics will uncover the answers to these questions and more, giving you an understanding of the complex relationships between economics and global business practices. You will examine a company, take an in-depth look at its structure, markets, competitors and external economic environment. You can follow your interests and career aspirations by selecting from a wide range of optional modules alongside your core subjects. This course is also available as a four-year course with a placement year, giving you real business experience. There is also the opportunity to gain a global perspective by studying abroad at our campuses in China or Malaysia or at a partner institution in locations including Australia, Sweden and the USA. You will graduate with all the knowledge, practical skills and confidence you need to stand out to employers as you start your career.


Your first year typically includes a mix of core and optional modules covering microeconomics and macroeconomics, entrepreneurship, corporate strategy, organisational studies, business computing, and quantitative methods. Second-year studies typically include core modules in the economics of innovation, pricing and decision making, organisation, international firms, quantitative methods and econometrics.
