Business Management & Economics
The pathway of Business, Management & Economics will look at the different topics of study within these fields and an experience of these areas at Higher Education with sample lectures as well as input from current students to ensure the students are well prepared for what it would take to do a course in Business and Management or Economics.
The programme will also focus on different career options open to students on Economics and Business and Management degrees and a look at the different study options at the University of Exeter in combination with other degrees.
Example topics covered include*:
- Introduction to Macroeconomics
- Introduction to Microeconomics
- Circular Economy and Sustainability
- Role of Psychology in the World of Work
- Human Resource Management
- The Digital Economy
- Marketing and Tourism
- Ethics and Decision Making
- The Financial Crisis
- The Role of Psychology in the World of Work
*Please note these subjects have been in previous programmes but the final programme is subject to change, based on the availability of speakers.
The Business Management & Economics pathway will also include two field trips to startups based locally that have expanded beyond anyone’s imagination: a local, award winning farm that now delivers nationwide and a converted quarry that is now one of the most famous eco attractions in the world. The students will have the chance to learn about their development and sustainment from small ideas to national treasures. There will also be visits from representatives of multinational banking group and stock investors to show the more traditional image of careers in Business and Economics.
Throughout the programme the students will be working on a Global Challenge that follows the path of the latest worldwide financial crisis and challenges the students to take their business through the hard times and into a brighter future.
