Business Economics with a Year Abroad

On this course you’ll combine insights from economics with a focus on business economics. This will give 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 learn how markets operate. You can then 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. This course also gives you the chance to spend your third year living and studying abroad at one of 25 partner universities across Asia, Australia, Europe and North America. The time you’ll spend studying abroad is a fantastic chance to show future employers you have what it takes to succeed in an international setting, and get an insight into the economic issues of another country. **Course Structure** On this four year course you’ll study a core set of compulsory modules in business and business economics – plus get a choice of optional modules to tailor your learning to your interests. **Year 1** In your first year you’ll discover macro and microeconomics through core economics modules and gain an understanding of economic modelling and statistical techniques through the modules Introductory Mathematics for Economists and Introductory Statistics for Economists.
