About Economics and Management, BSc - at University of Leeds

Combine a specialised study of economics with a broad understanding of the functions and processes involved in the management of an organisation.

You'll cover the core concepts, practices and techniques of each subject, gaining an understanding of microeconomics, macroeconomics, organisational behaviour and strategic management. You'll also learn about key aspects of business such as marketing and supply chain management. Diverse optional modules will give you the chance to focus on topics that interest you, such as business or labour economics, econometrics, transnational corporations or managing people from different backgrounds and cultures.

You'll explore the interaction between the economic environment and the organisations which inhabit it, while developing the analytical, quantitative, computing, presentation and other transferable skills required by the business world and employers in both the private and public sectors.

  • Course content

    Our degrees have a modular structure. This means that compulsory modules provide you with the core knowledge and skills that you need, while optional and discovery modules allow you to shape your course to suit your personal interests and career aspirations.

    Year 1 equips you with the mathematical and statistical knowledge you'll need to study both subjects, and a basic understanding of accounting practices. You'll also explore economic theory and history, and study organisational behaviour as the basis for your management modules.

    From this foundation, you'll develop your knowledge in both subjects over the course of Year 2. You'll study microeconomics and macroeconomics, as well choosing from a range of optional modules on topics as diverse as labour economics, econometrics and transport economics. On the management side, you'll explore important business functions like marketing, operations and supply chain management, the use of information in organisations and how the principles of organisational behaviour work in practice.

    By your final year, you'll have strong research and analytical skills to apply to your dissertation - an independently researched project on a management topics of your choice. Another compulsory module will examine the challenges of strategic management. In addition, you'll select optional modules from both subjects focusing on the topics that suit your interests and career plans, from management decision-making to public enterprise and regulation.
