How can companies remain competitive in a crowded marketplace? How do regulatory systems impact profit margins, innovation and growth? How do they manage risk? Our BSc Industrial Economics with Insurance will help you discover the answers to these questions and more, giving you an understanding of the complex relationships between economics and global business practices. You will analyse a company, taking 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 countries including Australia, Europe 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 core modules in microeconomics and macroeconomics, entrepreneurship, corporate strategy, organisational studies, business computing, and quantitative methods. You will also normally take an additional module in insurance and risk management, including specialist content provided by our Centre for Risk, Banking and Financial Services. Second-year studies typically include core modules in the economics of innovation, pricing and decision making, organisation, international firms, quantitative methods and econometrics. Your final year will incorporate industrial economics, corporate restructuring and governance, regulation and more.
