Your time is split equally between the two subjects. You'll get a good grounding in both, which opens up different career possibilities.
The mix of first-year topics usually includes information systems, marketing, operations management, economic analysis and economic policy.
In the second and third year you'll get into the core areas of business management, including corporate social responsibility, marketing, organisational behaviour and strategy. You'll also look at subjects such as macro and microeconomics.
There are plenty of opportunities for hands-on experience. You'll look at real-life case studies and you get the chance to do project work, on your own and as part of a team.
Degrees with employment experience
We offer you the chance to do a year-long work placement, starting after your second year. This is a great opportunity to get paid work experience with some of the UK's top economics employers who want to recruit the best students from Sheffield. Recent placements have been with Lloyds Bank, Office for National Statistics and Johnson & Johnson.
