The Economics and Social Statistics pathway of the BA (Hons) Economic and Social Studies degree - or BA(Econ) for short - is a new course at The University of Manchester for 2018. This flexible, innovative course brings together research-led teaching in accounting, business, economics, finance, politics and sociology and offers a considerable depth of insight into contemporary business. Economics doesn't function in isolation, which is why you'll study it in context at Manchester. Commercial practices are best understood and explored through an understanding of the environments in which businesses function.
This course offers advanced social statistics teaching for students with a grounding in maths and/or statistics (gained either at A-level or on the specialist first year course units you'll take alongside all of our BA Econ students). Social statistics uses data, which can be numbers, text, sounds, images, memories or experiences; to study human behaviour and social environments. We will use it to ask questions about business environments, the ways they function and their impact. Your contact with the broad range of disciplines within the BA (Econ) means you'll gain a range of perspectives on business, for example: • Politics - the effects of government policy, regulation and public spending and their impact on businesses and economies;
• Economics - the role of the labour and finance markets, micro- and macroeconomic factors;
• Sociology - employees and consumer, behaviour, demographic changes and how companies must adapt to changing populations.
