Explore two complementary and dynamic subjects on our Business Management and Economics BSc. The programme will provide you with the essential know-how that is highly valued by employers allowing you to capitalise on a broad range of career opportunities. You will develop your ability to analyse and think critically, enabling you to question the different business management and economic themes and debates you will study. The business management element of the programme explores fundamental areas of business including how organisations operate and the strategies they use, alongside examining different perspectives on the employee/employer relationship. Economics challenges you to think critically about the underpinning theories of various actions of households, firms, and governments. You will examine the decisions they make about spending and investments, hiring employees and how conclusions are made about market outcomes such as output, inflation, the stock market and interest rates. During your first year on the programme you will study core modules that will enhance your skills and knowledge in areas such as quantitative methods, which will focus your learning on the analysis and modelling of business information. You will explore the world of work and management, familiarise yourself with how markets work, understand how consumers and organisations make economic decisions, and learn about the developments in the wider economy and aggregate behaviour. Alongside core modules you have a range of optional modules to choose from. At this level on the course there are opportunities to learn essential knowledge in accounting, marketing, human resource management and international business. Other topics include business law, managing people in the context of social change, and the opportunity to learn more about managing in organisations by working with other students to find a solution to a business problem set by a multinational corporation.
