Oxford BA in Economics and Management

Skills you will develop

The programme will help you understand the world around you and to think clearly and analytically. You will be stimulated intellectually by challenging work. Our students go on to work for an impressive range of organisations.

You will:

  • acquire a broad and analytical appreciation of economics and management studies
  • develop advanced critical skills, including developing arguments and critiquing evidence, using verbal and written communication, and improving your interpersonal relations.
  • learn how to be a self-directed and reflective learner, with effective self-management and research skills.


There is no requirement for you to carry out a work placement as part of your degree. However, many of our students work or take up internships during holidays. Our Careers Service holds a list of UK and International Internships which you might find useful.
