    Description

    How can economic ideas and principles help us to understand how organisations work and industries function? What role do economic principles play in management decisions and in the analysis of strategic interactions among businesses and organisations?

    Unlike conventional management courses, this course analyses the economics of a business or organisation and investigates how they operate and behave. Whether you have already studied aspects of economics, our course gives a thorough introduction to all aspects of economics and mathematics, including micro and macroeconomics, and introduces you to quantitative research methods (this is common across all our courses). You also have the opportunity to take optional modules from across our Department or our University. Throughout your course, you build on these skills and apply them to the study of organisational management.

    You are required to complete a project in your third year (applicable to all our courses) and this is an excellent way to evidence the skills you have learnt to future employers or prepare for postgraduate study.

    Whether you continue studying or go into work, you will graduate secure in the knowledge you have received one of the best undergraduate training available in economics, from one of the top-rated research departments in the UK.

    Course Content

    In your first and second year, you will 90 credits of compulsory modules and will get 30 credits of optional modules, meaning you can take two optional 15 credit half-year modules or one 30 credit full-year module. You will have limited choice for this optional module, choosing between two modules offered by Essex Business School.
    With a small number of exceptions, if you successfully complete the first year of your BA, then you are qualified to enter the second year of that course and a range of other courses: for example, if you take economics, politics, philosophy and sociology, then you have a choice of at least nine possible single or joint honours courses at the end of your first year. This means you can change your course, providing you have taken the appropriate pre-requisites and places are available.
    In your final year you will have greater flexibility; you will have 60 credits of optional courses, 30 credits of compulsory modules and a 30 credit research project, an individual piece of research on a topic that interests you, which is compulsory.
    We operate a credit framework for our awards, which is based on principles widely used across the UK university sector. Each module has a credit rating attached and our standard three-year course consists of 360 credits (120 credits in your first year, and 240 credits across your second and final years).

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
