Course Overview

Our four-year Business Economics (Industry) degree will provide you with a strong foundation in economic theories and principles with a particular focus on examining their relevance to business and management. This course has greater flexibility to combine Economics with one or more subjects chosen from other departments. You will need to specify your intended specialism on Section 3 of your UCAS application. During your course, you can choose to continue these subjects or focus more fully on Economics.

 In your first year, you'll study Principles of Economics and choose two first year subjects from courses offered by the Management School, one of which will be either Accounting and Finance or Marketing. You have a choice for your third first year subject from a wide range of disciplines covering Management Science through to Organisations, Work and Technology. You'll spend your second year following Economics and other Management courses including the option to study Business Law, Managerial Economics, Business and International Macroeconomics and Applied Business Economics and will spend your third year on placement before returning to Lancaster for your fourth year.  In this final year you have a wide range of Economics courses to choose from, including Industrial Organisation and International Business, alongside further optional topics Management and Business Law.
