This course allows you to study two subjects which are perfectly matched; Business and Economics are two of the most topical fields of debate and review for modern companies worldwide. You will gain invaluable insight into important issues challenging governments and business leaders, while learning how companies operate internally and within a global marketplace. You will develop highly employable digital skills and econometric capabilities suitable for a variety of opportunities working at the cutting edge of international business and economics. You also have the opportunity to study the Sage accounting course – at no cost - which students say helps their employability after graduation.
Through the Study Abroad programme, you could choose to spend your second year studying on an international exchange with one of our global partner institutions in Europe, the US or the rest of the world.
The Professional Development module in the second year helps you to develop the skills you need – presentation skills, networking, interview techniques etc – to move more easily into successful employment.
This degree is also offered with a Foundation Year, visit www.salford.ac.uk/ug-courses/business-foundation-year for details.
It was very important to me to choose “the right” university and the “the right” degree. I have done some research as to what I would like to do and managed to narrow it down.
I came across Salford University and I decided to attend the Open Day; when I arrived I remember that it ‘felt right”. I really liked how professional everyone was and the modern building. I applied, got accepted and that’s when my journey began!
Now that I am in my final year I can certainly say I have made the right choice!Zuzanna Czyzowska - BSc (Hons) Business and Economics student
This course allows you to either specialise or follow an integrated route and the modular design gives you considerable choice.
All Business and Economics students study the same modules in the first year, after which you are given the flexibility to review and change your options depending on which subjects interest you the most. This approach gives you a vital foundation in key business disciplines to support the subjects you go on to study in your second and final years. It also means that all students achieve the same level of Business and Economics knowledge at the end of their first year.
