Course content

Huddersfield Business School is excited to announce a new portfolio of courses that are currently being formalised. These are designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to be influential and successful in a rapidly changing global environment.

Our new portfolio covers a wide variety of subject areas offering courses in traditional business and management alongside new and innovative topics. Although this specific course will not be available in 2019, a similar range of courses will follow covering contemporary topics that suit the changing external environment. Our new courses should be available to view online from mid-November, however in the meantime please do get in touch if you would like to enquire about any of our Business School courses.

In a globalised world, the importance of understanding economic principles and their impact on business is more relevant than ever before. Businesses need highly skilled individuals who are able to understand the nature of the economic environment and the impact this will have on organisations. They need individuals who are able to take economic theory and principles and apply them to real-world business problems.

This Master’s course provides a stimulating and intellectually rigorous programme for individuals who want to respond to these demands. You will have the opportunity to develop a solid understanding of economics alongside subjects which will help enhance your knowledge of business organisations. Key core modules include Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, International Economics and International Business Environment. Additionally, you’ll have an option module choice of one of the following: Economics of Financial Markets, Development Economics or Applied Banking and Financial Modelling.

Employment opportunities for prospective students remain strong in economics, management consultancy, multinational organisations and government agencies. Recent graduates from similar business and finance courses at the University have gone on to work for leading FTSE-100 companies, Government, the media, industry and manufacturing.

Many of our economics tutors are members of the Royal Economic Society (RES)and undertake research in areas such as banking, international economics, international political economy and Islamic finance.
