Why study this course?
The BSc Business Management with Economics with integrated foundation year aims to equip you with specialised skills in economic decision-making, whilst still providing you with a breadth of knowledge of business management, together with the transferable skills that are necessary to apply this knowledge in new and challenging contexts.
- We are ranked in the top 150 for Business Management in the world, compared to (Wollongong 151 – 200, Heriot-Watt 251-300, Middlesex – 351 - 400)
- Our strong links with industry mean that rigorous undergraduate academic study is combined with a real practical focus, leading to excellent job opportunities for our students.
- We are the 4th most targeted university of top UK employers (High Fliers Research 2022).
- Be part of the next generation of responsible leaders. We are developing a curriculum that holds responsible and ethical practice at its core. You’ll be involved in our research from the start, applying what you are taught to real world problems and honing your communication skills when presenting findings to stakeholders.
Designed for international students who require a preparatory year prior to undergraduate study, the foundation course is equivalent in learning to year 13 of the UK education system. We will ensure you're fully prepared for your undergraduate programme, immersing you in the university environment and giving you dedicated support in your first year in Dubai, on our business management with economics foundation course.
In year one, you will be given a thorough grounding in the subject areas you are to continue in later years. Year One also contains a key skills module for personal and academic development which falls within the Business Management Skills theme. In addition, you will learn two economics modules, namely, Principles of Economics and Introduction to Mathematics for Economics.
In Year Two you continue to develop a deeper understanding of responsible business and the relevancy of discipline relevant research, and learn the core Microeconomics and Macroeconomics modules to develop skills in economic decision making. Although still broad based, modules begin to become more focused and specialised within programme themes.
Year Three features modules that are increasingly advanced, allowing you more specialisation whilst maintaining a relatively broad spectrum across the discipline. You can also specialise in either Microeconomic Theory or Macroeconomic Theory. The year is underpinned by a compulsory dissertation which allows you to investigate in depth an area of personal interest in business and economics.
