This degree is a purpose built transformational learning programme open to those holding a primary degree in a natural science, engineering or an industrial technology discipline and are currently employed or employed until recently in a scientific laboratory or otherwise actively engaged in scientific research. It is designed to identify connections between candidates past formal education experience and a foundational economics base, facilitating them to explore a portfolio of conceptual and practical tools that relate to ways of attaining knowledge and the economic system.
Through a series of modules candidates will acquire an extensive and in depth appreciation of core concepts, themes and issues in business economics and economic policy and will develop a business tool kit as a bridge that facilitates a transition in personal development toward business. This will provide candidates with enhanced employment opportunities across a wide range of business and public sector organisations and provides a solid foundation for further study opportunities in economics.
