    Course Summary

    The University of West London’s Business Economics program is designed for students who have a keen interest in Business, Economics or both, but without any formal training in either discipline. It will give you the knowledge and theory basis you’ll need to understand business and economic issues, and then give you the specific business and management skills you need to apply economic theory to real world situations and business challenges.

    Because it begins with an integrated foundation year, this program is perfect for those who may not have done well on their A Levels or other qualifications, or who have been out of the educational system for some time and need a refresher.

    You’ll have the option of selecting a specialty for yourself, which might include innovations and start-ups, the economics of entertainment, real estate, Islamic finance, behavioural economics, urban economics, global markets or even something as specific as the economics of the fashion industry.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
