BSc Business Economics with a Placement Year L114

Full Time: 4 Years
Study BSc Business Economics with Placement Year and use economic theory and methods to investigate markets, business environments and industry, and put your knowledge to practical use through a placement in your third year.
You will develop a strong understanding of quantitative techniques and the conceptual underpinnings of microeconomic and macroeconomic theory and how they can be applied to the analysis of business behaviour. You will cover topics including money and banking, industrial organisation and business history.
In the first and second year, you'll take many of the same core modules as our BSc Economics course to ensure you develop the skills and knowledge required to effectively study economics. You'll acquire specialist knowledge of business economics through core modules in your second and final year, which cover the topics of money and banking, industrial organisation and business history.
Optional modules allow you to explore other areas of economics or learn more about the practical aspects of business, such as accounting. Modules from other subjects such as history and politics are also available and are a good way to broaden your knowledge and pursue other interests.
In addition to traditional lectures, you will take part small group tutorials in which you can discuss and analyse theory and practice through case studies, exercises, group presentations and open debate. You will have the opportunity to extend your study of economics beyond the classroom through our student-run Economics Society, which has arranged lectures on topics ranging from 'How happy are you?' to 'Are you a Marxist economist?' as well as conversations with economists on topical matters such as the economics of health and feminism.
