Business Studies and Economics

Course Summary

Successful businesses need to be able to respond to a diverse range of external influences that could impact their organisation's success.

On the Business Studies and Economics course you’ll learn to analyse and understand these influences, through our core modules, following a curriculum devised in conjunction with academics based in Warwick Business School and our Department of Economics.

You’ll study and research alongside experts in the fields of business and economics. With our guaranteed conditional offer, you’ll have the opportunity to progress to an undergraduate course at one of the UK’s most highly-rated business schools (FT Global MBA ranking, 2016).

Previous students on the Business Studies and Economics course have progressed to degrees such as BSc International Management, BSc Accounting and Finance, and BSc Economics.

Modules

On all courses there are a range of core and elective module choices, with students studying four modules in total. Typical module choices on the Business Studies and Economics course include Foundations of Business, Business Mathematics and Statistics, Applied Economics, and Psychology.

All students also study a core Inquiry and Research Skills module, as well as the English Language Certificate, which will be tailored according to your needs.

Modules are reviewed on a regular basis and therefore may be subject to change; our website will update to reflect any changes.
