About

Economics and Management are disciplines that fit together naturally, and by having expertise in both areas within a single School of Economics, Finance and Management we are able to offer you a genuinely integrated course of study.

This combination prepares you for a broad range of careers in business and commerce, as well as providing you with a solid grounding suitable for postgraduate study in either subject.

Why study Management at Bristol?

Our Department of Management, part of the School of Economics, Finance and Management, is small enough to be friendly and offer strong student support yet large enough to provide an international experience. One third of our students come from outside the EU, and we have strong links with international partner institutions such as Copenhagen Business School.

Our management courses take a social science approach, examining the behaviour of individuals and organisations in their full context. Common areas of study in the first year of each of our management courses give you the option to transfer between degrees before the second year as your interests develop.

Our subjects address both theoretical and empirical aspects, our lecturing team comprises leading researchers and specialist teaching staff. Your contact time will be balanced between lectures and small-group tutorials.

In 2014 (the most recent graduation cohort at the time of writing), 28% of our students graduated with first-class honours, and a further 56% earned a 2.1.
