Explore core economic theory, develop management knowledge and learn how different strategies are used to make key decisions within an organisation.


Combine economics with management to develop an understanding of key business concepts. On this course you’ll learn how organisations are managed, the strategies used to compete for customers and the importance of economics in achieving an organisation’s objectives.


Alongside the fundamental theories and techniques of economics, you’ll study complementary modules in finance, business, accounting and management. Tailoring your degree in this way helps build the knowledge and skills to support a career in your area of interest, whether that’s in the field of economics, consultancy or a broader business management role. 


Central to the course is the real-world application of economics and management. The curriculum includes lectures from expert speakers and case studies where you will have a chance to investigate a range of contemporary economics issues to develop your analytical, numerical and problem-solving skills.


The first year provides a foundation in economic principles and general management studies. In subsequent years you will further develop your understanding of core areas of economics and management such as macroeconomics, microeconomics, innovation, operations and data analysis. 


You have the option to complete the course in three years, add a placement year or spend a year abroad. The flexible structure coupled with the varied selection of optional modules across all years allow you to tailor your studies to your interests and aspirations.


Our students graduate with specialist knowledge in areas of accounting and of finance, as well as the analytical, IT and problem-solving skills that are highly valued by employers in the UK and internationally. This combination of academic knowledge and transferable skills will open up a range of career opportunities in the financial world and beyond.


Our focus on employability extends beyond the classroom. You will benefit from employability-focused events that will give you a competitive edge in the job market. From interview advice and employer talks to subject-specific careers fairs, we work with you to achieve your goals.


Previous graduates have gone on to work within the accountancy profession and for businesses as accountants, specialising as auditors, financial accountants, tax specialists, management consultants etc. Graduates have also specialise in areas of finance such as financial analysis, risk management and investment banking. For employers such as PWC, KPMG, Deloitte, EY, Grant Thornton, National Audit Office, Capita, Deutsche Bank and Sage Plc. Many have been offered places on graduate talent schemes across a range of sectors, while others have taken on roles in charitable organisations and in general management.
