A programme that gets to the heart of many of the most significant challenges faced by governments and organisations across the globe, Business and Economics equips you with highly employable skills and prepares you for a career in a variety of industries.
Economics is a consistently central topic of media discussion, and throughout the programme, you will study real examples and examine the implications of the theories explored in the real-world of economics. With a curriculum that is career-focused and industry-informed, you’ll learn how to translate insights from economic models into business strategies and economic policies.
Studying these complimentary subjects together provides an excellent introduction to business and economics and gives you the knowledge required to succeed in high-level and rewarding 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
At Salford Business School, we place employability at our core. This means that the modules on the Business and Economics programme are designed to reflect the current needs of employers. Between your second and third years, you’ll have the opportunity to take part in an additional work placement to put your skills and knowledge into practice and enhance your CV. You will not pay university fees during this year and will earn a salary for the work you do.
You will start the programme by studying a number of core modules that will provide you with an understanding of key business and economic concepts. Following your first year, you’ll continue to develop your skills and ultimately undertake more specialised modules that reflect your interests or chosen career path.
During certain modules you will have the chance to make use of Salford Business School’s Bloomberg Trading Suite. The Bloomberg terminals help to bridge the gap between theory and practice: using the latest technology, they improve your analytical skills and allow you to practice decision-making using the latest global economic data.
This innovative module has been nominated for the Course and Curriculum Design award in the 2018 Guardian University Awards. One participant commented “It was thanks to this module that I gained a much better understanding of what employers are looking for and where I stand in comparison to that from the marks and feedback received… This proves to me I do have the experience and competencies sought after by employers. Realising this has really boosted my confidence.”
Please note that it may not be possible to deliver the full list of options every year as this will depend on factors such as how many students choose a particular option. Exact modules may also vary in order to keep content current. When accepting your offer of a place to study on this programme, you should be aware that not all optional modules will be running each year. Your tutor will be able to advise you as to the available options on or before the start of the programme. Whilst the University tries to ensure that you are able to undertake your preferred options, it cannot guarantee this.
