Our Economics & Management BSc provides you with a broad-ranging course covering the fundamentals of these influential fields and offering an ideal platform for careers in business, finance, government and the third sector. You will learn how consumers, firms and governments make decisions that determine how resources are allocated, and about the effective use and coordination of labour. Our course also covers a broad range of management disciplines, allowing you to understand how businesses and organisations operate effectively. During the third year of the programme, you will have the opportunity to undertake a year in industry working in an organisation in the UK or overseas. Through a placement, students can develop personal and professional skills, gain practical experience, and apply theories, concepts and academic knowledge from their studies to real-world issues within a global business context. Whilst all students are responsible for securing their own placement and such opportunities can never be guaranteed, our dedicated Global Placements Team provides extensive placement support to guide students through the process.

Given my interest in research, I chose King’s because of its global reputation as one of the best research universities in the world. The extreme support and flexibility provided have been really helpful and I have now come a long way since I first started at King’s, not just in academic terms but also in terms of overall and personality growth.
