The Foundation in Business and Management is a 1+3 year programme that results in direct progression to the undergraduate degrees related to business and management. This rigorous programme provides students with a strong academic background that will result in enhanced language, communication, critical thinking and study skills.

Students on this programme also chose from a range of elective modules that provide the opportunity to sample topics related to their chosen undergraduate pathway such business economics, management and quantitative methods.

 

Following a similar structure to BSc Economics, this course is particularly suitable if you are interested in studying international trade and international aspects of financial economics.

It will provide you with core training in economics, combined with a special focus on a range of aspects of international economics, including international trade and monetary economics, in which the school has a worldwide reputation.

Modules in international economics form a significant element of this course, but there is also ample opportunity to take modules offered by other schools in the University. As with the BSc Economics degree, there are two quantitative pathways through the degree: econometric theory or quantitative economics (applied econometrics).

As a graduate, you will have a thorough knowledge of economic theory and how it is applied to the real world, particularly in relation to international trade, monetary economics and globalisation. You will also be familiar with the key analytical techniques that economists use in practice. 


Year one

In your first year, you will study the core of BSc Economics with additional modules in the economics of integration, focusing on the key principles and the largest customs union in the world: the European Union. If you have A level maths, you may choose either econometrics or quantitative economics and will take a year-long study skills module to ensure that your transition to university study is smooth. 


Year two

This year will help develop your knowledge of the theoretical framework for international trade and money, including topics such as globalisation, off?shoring, monetary policy and the business cycle.
There is a choice of quantitative pathways and those who wish to emphasise the international dimension of their degree can apply to spend a semester of their second year studying abroad, taking similar modules to your counterparts back in Nottingham or expanding your knowledge through other options. 


Year three

Modules in international economics typically occupy half of your final year. Pitched at an advanced level, they cover a range of theoretical and applied topics in monetary economics, international trade and macroeconomics.

Under the guidance of your academic tutor, you will also undertake a year-long dissertation on a topic of your choice. Optional modules reflect the research specialisms of academic staff and make up around one-third of the final year. You can choose from those offered by the School of Economics or elsewhere in the University.
