Course summary

The BSc (Hons) Management with Economics places an emphasis on the wider social, historical and political context in which organisations operate, and how it shapes the circulation, and demand/supply, of goods and services. It will equip you with a comprehensive theoretical and practical understanding of management. You'll learn about key economic, financial, and psychological knowledge-bases that will form the basic tools you need to effectively manage and lead people at work, and engage in activities such as business creation and product/business development. The degree will also prepare you for work in large, multinational and small-to-medium sized organisations that are global in nature, innovative, entrepreneurial and digitally cutting-edge.
