Program description

Business Economics with a European Language (French)

The Business Economics degree programme with French provides students with an understanding of economic theory, in particular the organisational and managerial characteristics of the modern business enterprise. It also aims to provide a high level of competence in French and knowledge of the economy of France.

The programme aims to inform you of the main features of the UK industrial economy and the key developments in business.

You will examine government and international business policy to identify their ramifications for the development of markets and firms. You will also be introduced to subject areas outside the economics discipline with the opportunity to follow modules in business finance, marketing and other aspects of management.

Through the study of Business Economics and French, the programme encourages a range of transferable discipline-specific and core skills that will be of value to you in future education and in your subsequent careers.

  • The opportunity to specialise in economic analysis through all three years of study and therefore to build up considerable knowledge and skills in the discipline;
