Subject

Management studies

How can companies remain competitive in a crowded marketplace? How do they decide how much to invest in research and development? How do regulatory systems impact profit margins, innovation and growth?

BSc Industrial Economics will help you discover the answers to these questions and more, giving you an understanding of the complex relationships between economics and global business practices. You’ll analyse a company, taking an in-depth look at its structure, markets, competitors and external economic environment.

You can follow your individual interests and career aspirations by selecting from optional modules alongside your core subjects. You could also really enhance your CV by opting for a work placement year at a company where you can be at the front line of business.

There's also the opportunity to gain a global perspective by studying abroad at our own campuses in China or Malaysia, or at a partner institution in locations including Australia, Sweden and the USA.

Modules

The first year of the course typically includes core modules in microeconomics and macroeconomics, entrepreneurship, corporate strategy, organisational studies, business computing and quantitative methods. Second-year studies typically incorporate core modules in the economics of innovation, pricing and decision making, organisation, international firms, quantitative methods and econometrics. Your final year will cover industrial economics, regulation, corporate restructuring and governance, financial economics and policymaking.
