Business Economics with a Placement Year

**About This Course** All businesses operate within an economic context. If you aspire to work in business, understanding the economic context in which businesses operate will give you a significant advantage. By studying economics with a focus on business you’ll learn how to create powerful business strategies and make better business decisions. Whether you are interested in business, politics or simply how the world ticks, economics is a wonderful discipline for understanding how individuals make choices, how those choices create markets, and how markets interact to create national and global economies. It also provides the essential understanding for how economic policies can be developed to improve social welfare. On this course you'll typically spend between 9-12 months of your third year in a full-time placement, gaining invaluable working experience and employability skills in a relevant area of your choice. Although you'll be expected to secure your own work placement, dedicated staff within the School and the Careers Service will support and assist you throughout the process of searching, applying for, and ultimately gaining a position. Support will also be provided whilst you're on placement and when you return to complete your studies in your fourth (final) year. Placements are just one aspect of work-based opportunities available to our students. Over the last few years several of our students have secured internships during their studies at several top companies and organisations including EY, Government Economic Services, Handelsbanken, ONS, Willis Towers Watson and many others. **Overview** On this course you'll combine insights from economics with a focus on business economics. This gives you an understanding of the economic context in which modern business operates, helping you gain the skills to develop business strategies in a competitive environment. To learn how the economy works from a business perspective you'll study microeconomics, macroeconomics, economic modelling and statistics. You’ll also discover how businesses operate and interact within an economy. You’ll be introduced to the decisions firms need to make in the module The Economics of Business Decision-Making and investigate financial decision making in The Economics of Corporate Finance. You’ll also learn about the fundamentals of corporate finance, business strategy and the significance of increasing globalisation, as well as exploring industrial organisation, competition economics and how markets operate. You can complement your core studies with optional modules in economics and finance, which cover areas such as labour, public policy, financial markets, derivatives, risk management, history of economic thought, the economics and business of sport, alternative investments, and environmental economics. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
