Management studies

The BSc (Hons) Management with Economics places an emphasis on the wider social, historical and political context in which organisations operate, and how it shapes the circulation, and demand/supply, of goods and services.

It will equip you with a comprehensive theoretical and practical understanding of management. You'll learn about key economic, financial, and psychological knowledge-bases in order to provide them with some of the basic tools you require to effectively manage and lead people at work, and engage in activities such as business creation and product/business development.

The degree will also prepare you for work in large, multinational and small-to-medium sized organisations that are global in nature, innovative, entrepreneurial and digitally cutting-edge. You can also expect to develop transferable skills in critical-thinking, reflection, time-management, leadership, written and verbal communication, and numeracy, and to undertake research on an individual and group basis.

Goldsmiths was in the top 10 universities for Business, Management and Marketing in the Guardian University League Tables 2019!

The Guardian University League Tables rank UK universities across many subject areas and dimensions that are important to students. This highlights the strong market value of a degree in Management from Goldsmiths, the integrity of our modules and programmes, and most importantly, the continual engagement of all our staff, from the admin team to the lecturers, with all of our highly valued students and collaborators.

This is a degree in demand, as business increasingly needs workers who can examine and explain complex data. And yet the number of economics graduates fell by nearly 10% last year, which means demand is even greater. As so many economic grads go into banking and finance, it's not surprising that over half of all 2015's economics graduates who did go into work were working in London. And don't think it's just the finance industry that's interested in these graduates - there's a significant number who enter the IT industry to work with data as analysts and consultants. It's quite common for economics graduates to go into jobs such as accountancy and management consultancy which may require you to take more training and gain professional qualifications - so don’t assume you won’t have to take any more exams once you leave uni. And the incentive to take them, of course, is better pay, which will be on top of an already healthy average starting salary of over £30,000 for graduates working in the capital.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
