Why Earn a BSc Economics and Management?

Global economies are continually evolving and businesses – particularly those that operate internationally – need guidance from managers and leaders who have the ability to apply economic reasoning to think independently about management issues. With a focus on developing critical analytical and quantitative skills, this programme prepares you for a wide variety of careers including, but not limited to: accountancy, banking and finance, general management, consultancy, digital technology and business analysis.

According to 2018 data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), knowledge areas related to those sectors (e.g. administration and management, economics and accounting) are in demand – not just in the UK, but in the EU and around the world. In the coming years, OCED also predicts a shortage of skills like financial resource management and judgement and decision making.4

The business services and finance sector plays an important role in the UK economy:

In 2019, it accounted for more than a third of gross added value nationally.3
