This is an integrated course in the economics of business practice, which will provide you with understanding and experience of business practice from an economic perspective.
It will provide you with a foundation for understanding business practice and gaining the skills needed to work in a business environment. This stage takes place over nine months, and involves modules delivered around a conceptual focal point.
At the end of stage 1, you can progress to stage 2 (MSc in Economics of Business Practice). In order to progress to stage 2, you must achieve at least 50% across modules on the Postgraduate Diploma at the first attempt (stage 1) and successfully obtain suitable work placement (arranged in conjunction with the School).
On this course you will develop a greater understanding of how business operates, using economic theory to investigate and experience business practice. You will study firm strategy, survey techniques, entrepreneurship and even get to run your own real on-campus business.
In addition, you will go on a journey of personal, professional and adult mental development.

I would highly recommend this course to any student who wants something more than the standard academic-based qualification. This course has given me immense academic knowledge, valuable commercial experience and pragmatic business acumen.
