About

The Economics with Management BA course offered by Durham University expands on the core Economics degree. Alongside the fundamental theories and techniques of Economics, you’ll study selected modules in finance, business, accounting and management. 

Overview

Course Learning and Teaching

Students on this degree learn through a combination of lectures, seminars, workshops, informal but scheduled one-on-one support, and self-directed learning, such as research, reading, and writing. All of these are supported by a state-of-the-art virtual learning environment, Durham University Online (DUO). 

Seminars and workshops are much smaller groups than lectures, small enough to allow one-on-one interaction with tutors. Workshops also allow hands-on experience of the kind of work professional economists perform. This emphasis on small-group teaching reflects a conscious choice to enhance the quality of the learning experience rather than the quantity of formal sessions. In fact, the degree is designed to feature fewer formal sessions and more independent research as students move from their first to their final year. 

Small-group teaching and one-on-one attention from the personal academic advisor (provided for all students when they enter the programme) are part of the learning experience throughout, but by the final year classroom time gives way, to some extent, to independent research, including a dissertation - supported by one-on-one supervision - that makes up a third of final year credits. 

In this way the Economics with Management BA course offered by Durham University systematically transforms you from a consumer of knowledge in the classroom to a generator of knowledge, ready for professional or postgraduate life. These formal teaching arrangements are supported by "drop-in" surgeries with teaching staff and induction sessions that begin in the week before the start of the degree and continue at key times throughout each year of the course. 

Students can also attend an extensive programme of research-focused seminars where staff and visiting scholars present their cutting edge research.

Programme Structure

  • Economics with Management expands the core of the Economics degree to include one further compulsory management module and a further optional module which could be from another department, including a foreign language.
  • In the second year, you study five compulsory modules investigating the core issues in Economics and Management, and you will be able to choose one further optional module which could include a foreign language or one module from another department.
  • In the third year, you submit a Dissertation (a compulsory double module).  The Dissertation module allows you to analyse, in great depth, your choice of research question in Economics.  In addition you study one compulsory module in Management. You then choose a further two optional Economics modules and one Management option.
