Our Business Economics programme combines a broad basis of economic study with a particular focus on how businesses operate, placing less emphasis on mathematical techniques than our other Economics programmes.
From examining how businesses behave and their role within the economy, to the strategic decisions taken by management and the economic importance of business, you will learn to employ analytical tools and data analysis techniques that will contribute to your skillset.
When you come to study economics at the University of Surrey, you will not only find a School of Economics that boasts an exceptional reputation and top-quality courses – you will also discover a thriving, vibrant environment in which to learn and develop.
You will build your analytical problem-solving abilities, develop quantitative and data analysis proficiency, improve your computing skills, and polish your written and oral presentation talents. These skills are highly sought-after in today’s challenging economic environment, as organisations strive to solve increasingly complex business problems.
Across all our programmes, we pride ourselves on the levels of supervision you receive, creating a warm and friendly environment in which to study. The student experience at the School of Economics is vital to the success of our programmes and, through a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars and workshop sessions, you will be encouraged to express yourself and develop your full potential.
Our Business Economics programme allows you to study accounting and work on a team project to design a business plan that will be evaluated by professional business assessors.
Graduates from our programmes are highly successful in securing quality jobs. The ‘problem-solving’ nature of the subjects, the topical and applied focus of our programmes and the experience gained on the professional placement greatly appeal to employers. Computing skills are often an additional asset.
Graduate employment spans the finance sector (including banking, accountancy and investment analysis), the corporate sector (including management training) and the public sector. For example, recent graduates are now working for the Bank of England, the Government Economic Service (in a variety of government departments), numerous City firms (such as JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, KPMG and Ernst & Young) and other commercial organisations (such as Cornhill Insurance, Legal and General, and British Airways). Their job roles range from economic policy advisor, investment manager, financial economist and statistician to airline pilot. A number of graduates each year go on to study for higher degrees, both in the UK and abroad.
