The course

Economics and Management with a Year in Business (BSc)

This course is provided jointly by one of the UK's top ten teaching and research centres for Economics and our innovative School of Business and Management. Studying Economics and Management at Royal Holloway means that you will learn from internationally renowned experts who will share their research and experience so that you gain current and relevant skills and knowledge. This intellectually stimulating and diverse course combines two highly complementary subjects and covers the core course of the Economics degree with that of the Management degree. Selecting this degree will provide you with the knowledge and skills that will give you excellent career prospects.

Our balanced approach to research and teaching guarantees high quality teaching from subject leaders, cutting edge materials and intellectually challenging debates. You will be supported through your studies by an established network of academic and departmental staff.

You will examine the theories and methods of economics, with a strong focus on analytical methods: develop skills in mathematics and statistics and learn to tackle economic problems: gain an understanding of management from strategy to marketing, and accounting to e-commerce, with an emphasises the case study approach.

By choosing to spend a year in business you will also be able to integrate theory and practice and gain real business experience.

  • Develop an understanding of the formal economic, political and legal institutions, as well as cultural, religious and linguistic differences.
  • See how the disciplines of economics and management complement and challenge each other.
  • Utilise your course knowledge in a placement environment while gaining valuable work experience.

From time to time, we make changes to our courses to improve the student and learning experience. If we make a significant change to your chosen course, we’ll let you know as soon as possible.

Core Modules

Year 1

You will take the following modules in Economics:

  • Principles of Economics is a first-year undergraduate module in how the economy works. The module is suitable for students with or without A-Level economics or equivalent. We will cover the basic theories of macroeconomics (that of the economy as a whole) and microeconomics (the behaviour of individuals, firms and governments and the interactions between them).

    The module adopts the state-of-the-art CORE approach (Curriculum Open-access Resources in Economics) to teaching Principles of Economics. The approach has three pillars which we rely on throughout the module:

    • Formulate a problem that our society is facing now or has faced in the past;
    • Build a theory to explain and solve the problem;
    • Evaluate the usefulness of the theory by using data observations and more novel theories.
  • Data Skills for Economists is about understanding the data we encounter constantly in everyday life and the data that social science researchers create as they explore and analyse the world around us. We'll endeavour to understand such questions as:

    • Where does data come from and how can we harvest it?
    • What useful information does the data contain?
    • How can we create new data to generate useful insights?

    Computers equipped with statistical software are a big part of the answer to the third question (above) so, accordingly, you'll spend much of your time learning to analyse and display data using the R statistical software package (R is the industry standard).

    We'll develop an ethos of clear communication of numerical information that will be supported by our growing understanding of statistical concepts and our growing proficiency with computers.

    Simultaneously, we'll delve into the seamy underside of the tricksters who try to fool you with falsified data. Understanding their game can provide at least some degree of inoculation against their attacks.

  • The aims of the module are to cover the basic mathematical and quantitative tools used by economists every day. The module gives an emphasis to the mathematical tools, which are applicable to solving a wide range of economic problems. The first half of the module is devoted to linear algebra, specific functions of one and more variables used in economics, manipulating those functions and finding their minima and maxima. In addition, the first half of this module delivers the rules of integration and differentiation, which prepares the you to apply constrained and unconstrained optimisation techniques in their subsequent 2nd and 3rd year of studies. Constrained and unconstrained optimisation techniques are also discussed. The second half of the module is devoted to optimisation theory which in turn will use the concepts of vectors and matrices, drawn from linear algebra, and require the study of concave functions. The knowledge of matrices will help you solve systems of linear equations, which are used in both microeconomic and macroeconomic planning and forecasting.

  • This module will be composed of an introduction to Employability, library resources, team building, and CV making. Career services will provide a session on self-awareness and decision making and library services will present their relevant resources. Finally, the Economics department will organise some team building exercises.

  • This module will describe the key principles of academic integrity, focusing on university assignments. Plagiarism, collusion and commissioning will be described as activities that undermine academic integrity, and the possible consequences of engaging in such activities will be described. Activities, with feedback, will provide you with opportunities to reflect and develop your understanding of academic integrity principles.


You will take the following modules in Management:

  • In this module you will develop an understanding of information systems and how they have become the backbone of contemporary businesses. You will consider how they are used by business managers as a tool for achieving operational excellence, developing new products and services, improving decision making, and achieving competitive advantage.

  • In this module, you will develop an understanding of the external and internal environments of organisations and their relevance to help you develop self-awareness and knowledge and skills required to succeed at university, at work and in life generally. You will look at a range of academic and professional literatures, examine the skills and abilities relevant to applying for or working as a professional, and consider how to communicate with academic and business audiences in a clear and effective manner.

  • In this module you'll be introduced to the fundamental aspects of financial accounting, management accounting and finance. You'll further be introduced to the underlying framework and concepts of accounting and finance and their role in organisations and society.

  • In this module, you will develop a solid grounding in key concepts relevant to a critical understanding of how organisations function, and why this matters to both employees and prospective managers. Themes such as organisational design, the social and psychological contract, conflict, power, diversity and equality, emotional labour, space and place, and the impact of internal and external forces on organisations, will be looked at through the lens of competing organisational theories such as the classical perspective, Institutional Theory, Systems Theory, and Contingency Theory. You will learn to demonstrate their understanding of, use, discuss, and evaluate these theories making use of a range of tools such as, contemporary case studies, class discussion, class presentations, and simulation exercises.
