Overview

Business
Studying Business as part of your course allows you to gain a firm understanding of the role of business in society and develop knowledge of the main functional areas; accounting, marketing and human resources through a creative mix of academic study, skills development and practical training. This can lead to a wide range of careers, but also allows focus on one functional area for more specific career prospects.
Economics
Studying economics allows you to gain a sound knowledge of economic principles and to appreciate fully the way in which this knowledge can be applied in ‘real world’ situations. The field of study emphasises the role of economics in the formation of policy by individuals, companies and governments as well as offering an appreciation of the role played by business in a modern economy. Through the study of economics, you will be able to gain insights into decision making and problem solving in a business context. You will have the ability to participate in economic debate and will gain a thorough grounding in the ways in which economic policy can help in the understanding formulation and execution of public policy.
