This course is delivered by the AACSB-accredited Business School, an accreditation attained by fewer than 5% of business schools worldwide. It recognises our focus on excellence in all areas.
Praised for its flexibility, our portfolio of Business Studies courses allows you to apply to our broad Business Studies degree (N100) and then migrate to a specialist field in year two. What’s more, as this course is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), you’ll not only graduate with a degree in Business Studies with Economics, but a CMI leadership and management qualification too.
Our Business Studies with Economics pathway is the perfect choice for those keen to learn the economic, qualitative and quantitative techniques and ideas used in the analysis and solution of business problems in the global marketplace. You’ll also be encouraged to explore alternative theories concerning the working of both the micro and macro economies, alternative economic systems, and alternative economic policy strategies.
Your curriculum, taught by highly qualified lecturers and industry-savvy practitioners, will include numerous networking events and compelling talks held by guest speakers from a variety of business disciplines. Plus there’s the possibility of travel in year two, as you can study the second semester at one of BU’s international partner institutions, currently in Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and the United States.
A 30-week period in industry will help to bolster your CV in year three. This will give you essential real-world experience, placing your theory and skills into practice, and enabling you to harvest a network of professional contacts – all of which are vital for successfully launching a career.
