Management Economics (Including Placement Year)

Financial crisis. Unemployment. Immigration. Market competition. Economics helps us shape the present and improve our future. Unlike conventional management courses, our BSc Management Economics analyses the economics of a business or organisation and investigates how they operate and behave. Our BSc differs from BA Management Economics in that you must take mathematical modules in your second year. You experience all aspects of economics and mathematics, including micro and macroeconomics, and explore quantitative research methods. In your first year, you have the opportunity to take optional modules from across the social sciences. In your second year you will take modules in Management of New Technology and Economics of Organisational Management. Your placement year gives you the chance to gain more experience and become even more employable. In your final year you will take Theory of Monopoly and Regulation and Market Structure and Strategic Behaviour. Throughout the course, you build on these skills and apply them to the study of organisational management.
