As a business economist, the numbers are important. Not just accounting, maths and statistics, but also the analytical and empirical skills needed to assess risks, calculate the future value of assets or identify potential trends in time. We’ll teach you to think and act as an economist, by studying what determines the trade balance of countries, how the money supply influences inflation, how governments regulate monopolies and why all this matters for business, learning about the importance of trust between buyers and sellers in second-hand markets and by understanding whether a company that is the only supplier in a market is eager to innovate.
You’ll start with economic concepts, theories and models in the first year, digging deeper in years two and three, with intermediate and advanced courses on macroeconomics, microeconomics, public finance, and international monetary economics. But don’t worry, you won’t be overwhelmed by theory! Other courses put new concepts to the test. Marketing, management, corporate finance, business law, and strategic brand management are just some of the applied courses that will help you manage a firm or even set up your own company. And we don’t stop there. People skills are so important. Especially if you dream of a career as a manager. So, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to develop these and interact with other students.
You’ll share the classroom with your fellow students for the first two years. In the third year, you’ll choose between one of two specialisations: International Business or Business & Technology. International Business offers advanced courses on business, economics and social entrepreneurship. Business & Technology adds technological entrepreneurship, advanced mathematics, and information technology to the mix.
