CourseBusiness Management and Economics BA (Hons)
Full-time | Four years with a placement option
Study business theories and models present in contemporary organisations and discover how national and global issues can affect the performance of a business. On this course, you will learn to apply this knowledge to solve complex real-world problems.
In your second year you can choose from a variety of modules, such as Economics of Financial Markets and Institutions, which will provide you with a thorough understanding of financial systems. The analytical and critical evaluation skills developed alongside your studies of economics will deepen your understanding of how to support successful businesses.
During your time at DMU you will also have an opportunity to add an international dimension to your studies by taking part in a short-term overseas visit. Business Management and Economics students recently visited Berlin, which gave them the opportunity to apply economic theory to analyse the benefits and costs of European integration.
Develop a critical awareness of both economic markets and business policy and analyse key decisions taken by organisations in both subject areas.
Placement opportunities with local, national and global companies. Past students have landed roles with IBM, Office for Budget Responsibility, Walt Disney, the NHS and the Government Economic Service.
Our alumni are employed by leading brands in graduate jobs. Recent successes include a business analyst at Deutsche Bank, audit associate at KPMG, financial analyst at PwC and financial advisor at Deloitte.
Enjoy an international experience through our DMU Global programme, which will allow you to apply the theoretical side of your course to real-world settings. Previous course-related trips have seen students enhance their studies in New York, Berlin, Greece, Beijing and Hong Kong, where they were able to gain an understanding of the global markets and how they work in different countries, while extending their knowledge of other cultures.
