BSc (Hons) Business Economics with Plymouth University
The Business Economics programme is designed to give you an appropriate educational experience and ensure that you have distinct career advantages. Your studies will help you to understand the decision making process within organisations and will create the habits of mind and critical faculties appropriate to the environment in which the business economist works. The course also contains a sustainability dimension.
At Plymouth Business School we aim to provide students with an in-depth knowledge of economics and the ability to apply that knowledge to the analysis of a range of practical situations that will be useful for future learning and employment. All named awards share a common core syllabus, which stresses the integration of theory and evidence in economic analysis and research.
The degrees emphasise the acquisition of key analytical and numerical skills, and the progressive development of students’ capacity for independent research. They also offer extensive opportunities for students to combine their study of economics with other subject areas across business, social sciences and foreign languages.
Students have the opportunity to undertake a work placement year either in the UK or abroad. Students also have the opportunity to study a language during their degree.
