A successful business career relies on many different elements. But prime among these is the acquisition of the specialist knowledge and understanding of the modern business world. Our flexible undergraduate degrees have been designed to give you these fundamental attributes with a choice that allows you to be as specialised or generalist as you wish.
Our undergraduate programmes date back to the early twentieth century and were among the first degrees in management to be offered in the UK. Today our extensive range of programmes are enhanced by excellent links with industry, commerce and the public sector, with the option of studying abroad on most courses. We cover issues of organisational policy and strategic planning, together with functional areas like production, finance, marketing, employment relations and human resources. In particular, we strive to reflect the global dynamic climate of contemporary business and management, through specialist courses in international business, entrepreneurship and climate change.
We draw on a variety of disciplines, such as psychology, law, economics, sociology, and mathematics. The courses cover topics in businesses but also in other types of organisation, for example charities and voluntary organisations.
This makes our courses important for those students who would like careers in management and for those who are simply interested in the relationships between people, organisations and their environment.
At the bottom line, a business degree from the University of Edinburgh Business School provides excellent career opportunities for all graduates.
