The BA (Hons) Business Economics degree at Lincoln has been designed to provide a theoretical understanding of the economic decisions faced by business in market economies, with a focus on a practical application within national and international settings. This course aims to explore business, industrial, macroeconomic and international economic contexts from an economist’s analytic perspective. Students will have the opportunity to develop key skills in economics, finance and business. The course combines topics in business and economics with the opportunity to develop the skills and problem solving abilities that will be valuable in solving the multifaceted problems faced by today’s business managers. This course is aimed at students who wish to study an economics degree, have not followed an economics or mathematics A-Level and who are looking for a programme without a strong mathematics component.
Business Economics combines the study of economics with a wide variety of business and finance-related topics. In the first year, the course covers basic economics and quantitative techniques combined with other functional business areas. In the second year, along with topics on fundamental econometrics and finance, an economic perspective is cast over industries and firms. During the final year, students are able to choose optional modules drawn from business, finance and economics. Students have the opportunity to undertake a substantive independent research project on a topic of their choice, with guidance from their academic supervisor. For the most up to date module information, please visit the course page for this programme on our website. Some programmes provide you with the opportunity to focus your study in a particular area through optional modules. Timetabling arrangements may limit the availability of some optional modules to some students. As the options often reflect staff research interests, they may alter over time due to staff availability.
The way students will be assessed on this course will vary for each module. It could include coursework, such as a dissertation or essay, written and practical exams, portfolio development, group work or presentations to name some examples. Throughout this degree, students may receive tuition from professors, senior lecturers, lecturers, researchers, practitioners, visiting experts or technicians, and they may be supported in their learning by other students.
