Bachelor's Degree in Economics and Management
The BA in Management Studies and Economics is a challenging programme enabling students to combine their studies of management with a particular focus on economic issues. This three-year degree course focuses on understanding economic phenomena from all their different perspectives so that the graduates will obtain the necessary knowledge required by he national and global job market.
The undergraduate degree programme explores issues that are crucial for the world we live in: how the economy and organisations work, and how resources are allocated and coordinated to achieve the objectives that are set. Economics and management are ideal intellectual partners, each one being particularly suitable to strengthen and cross-fertilise the other. Economics provides the broader understanding of economic activity within which all organisations work; management, in turn, analyses the character and goals of that functioning. The first two years include courses in economics, management, math, law and statistics so as to provide students with a solid foundation for the third year. Depending on the profession they would like to enter, students can then choose, in the third year, specialised courses to further increase their knowledge in the areas of marketing, finance and economics.

Competencies expected from Bachelors in Economics and Management
· Understanding of the foundations of Management and Economics through an introduction to the following basic subjects:
· political economics, microeconomics, macroeconomics,...
· main roles in business: accounting, finance, marketing,
· legal, societal, and human environment of organizations
· methodological tools (mathematical modeling, statistics, )
· Ability to critically apply learned knowledge to real situations observed in a simple field situation and/or in a transversal context
· Ability to summarize and communicate the knowledge acquired and the observations made
· Ability to integrate management decisions into their economic context (mixed training)
The Undergraduate Degree Course in Economics and Management provides students with the necessary skills needed to successfully enter the labor market/workforce, and be considered for hiring by private firms and public institutions with a European orientation and scope. The potential positions open to graduates of this program, further enhanced by their future educational choices, include:
- Firms, both in the private and public sector, active in the European market;
- Financial intermediaries;
- EU-level and other international institutions;
