The Business and Economics programme at Leeds Trinity University has been especially designed to provide a successful and engaging route into Business and Economics for those with an interest in developing highly marketable expertise and qualifications in this most relevant and important field of study. An understanding of Business and Economics lies at the heart of our everyday world – from what we do for a living and how much we earn, to where and how we live and even what we eat and do in our spare time. The programme will provide the essential knowledge, understanding and skills required for you to begin to operate competently and effectively within the international business and management environment. Prior knowledge of business or economics is not essential, but you should have a genuine interest in current affairs and be keen to learn how to apply economic analysis and business expertise to a range of real world issues and debates. In addition to the taught aspects of the programme, you will have the opportunity to engage in ground breaking research into business operations or economic developments at home and abroad. Two professional work placements will give you an insight into the range of careers open to you and help you begin to build networks and contacts as you complete your degree. You will have the opportunity to study abroad as part of your programme, working with a host of partner universities across Europe, the Far East and the US.
