Course description

This is a dual honours course run by the Sheffield University Management School and the Department of Economics.

Your time is split equally between the two subjects. You'll get a good grounding in both, which opens up different career possibilities.

The mix of first-year topics usually includes information systems, marketing, operations management, economic analysis and economic policy.

In the second and third year you'll get into the core areas of business management, including corporate social responsibility, marketing, organisational behaviour and strategy. You'll also look at subjects such as macro and microeconomics.

There are plenty of opportunities for hands-on experience. You'll look at real-life case studies and you get the chance to do project work, on your own and as part of a team.

Modules - what you study and when

Our students usually select from a range of compulsory and optional modules to add up to 120 credits.

Some departments offer courses that don't feature optional modules whereas other courses are fully flexible.

You can find out more by:

The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it's up-to-date and relevant. Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn. This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research; funding changes; professional accreditation requirements; student or employer feedback; outcomes of reviews; and variations in staff or student numbers.

In the event of any change we'll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption.

We balance a rigorous academic foundation with practical skills to ensure you are ready for the world of work.

We want you to develop skills so you can apply course content in a company setting. Our degrees combine real-world application with the most contemporary business thinking, and because our academics are world-leading researchers, your education will draw on the most current management theories.

Our courses are very practice-orientated, so guest lectures are a regular fixture. We've introduced cutting-edge technologies into our learning and teaching, including software such as PeerWise and Aropa.

We want you to be informed, innovative and proactive and do everything we can to support and enhance your career, steering you in the right direction with all the knowledge and skills you require.

Department of Economics

We have an international reputation for practical and real-world economics. You'll be taught by some of the top economic experts in their field and you'll receive the latest cutting-edge teaching from people that care passionately about their subject. Our staff advise government departments in the UK such as the Department for Work and Pensions and global organisations including the World Bank. Their expertise helps shape government policies and aims to improve people's lives.

We're one of the few stand alone economics departments in the north of England. We're large enough to offer a wide variety of optional specialised modules, but small enough so that you will get to know your tutors personally and build life-long friendships with the other students on your course.

You'll be based in our newly refurbished building in the heart of the campus. You will experience some of your teaching in our state-of-the-art classrooms in the same building as our staff offices. You'll also have your own social space with computer access.

Student profile


"I knew the course offered a lot of different modules that would allow me to experience different types of industry. You couldn't ask for a better place to come and study. In Sheffield you're very central - everything is very accessible."

David Morrison
Sheffield University Management School



"My advice would be... do a bit of research about the course, find out if you want to do economics and just go there with an open mind and be enthusiastic about the prospect of learning."

Adam Ellerington
