About

The Business Management and Sociology programme of the University of Aberdeen is a perfect partnership to add to your thorough grounding in business, organisations and ‘people’. The programme offers an in-depth exploration of how society shapes us as individuals in different ways – helping us to understand ourselves, our relationships with others and the challenges we face in a changing world.

Overview

At a Glance

In Business Management, you will gain a wide perspective and thorough grounding in all areas of business, including skills in accountancy and statistics. Your knowledge will be developed in the dynamic, international environment of our Business School where there are 45 nationalities, small class sizes and where teaching is delivered by leading figures in the fields of business practice and theory, corporate finance and organisational change. Your learning will be supported by dedicated careers advisers.

In Sociology, you will study topics as wide-ranging as work-life balance, sociology of the family, religion and society. You will also become skilled in the social research methods used to better understand different aspects of society - for example, observation, interviews, large-scale surveys, or analysing the content of documents and videos. You will be taught by academic staff with international reputations for conducting high-quality research in religion and secularisation, conflict and peace, social movements and global political sociology.

The Business Management and Sociology programme of the University of Aberdeen will give you great skills in thinking critically and posing probing questions – skills which have tremendous value to employers across the public, private and third sectors, with career paths including management, marketing and advertising, journalism, local and national government, social and market research, teaching, health services, social work, charities and human resources.
