    Hi there. I was looking into Oxford`s exclusive Engineering, Economics and Management courses, however I found that the course selection was no longer available in the course list. Also, I found that the course was said to be discontinued on the Jesus College website. Is the course really cancelled from curriculum?

    According to this, yes (obviously I can't verify whether this person knows what they're talking about or not, but the fact that multiple sources are saying the same thing suggests it's true.

    Do you happen to have any links to the other sources?

    Well as the OP pointed out, it's not on the courses list and it says on the Jesus College website that it's been discontinued. I don't know why Jesus College would say "Engineering, Economics and Management (EEM) is to be discontinued and applications will not be considered for entry in 2014 or later" if it wasn't true. It's a bit strange that there don't seem to be any bigger announcements about this but I think it's safe to say that it has been discontinued.

    Sorry I misunderstood you. I thought you meant you had seen multiple sources that it was coming back in this "entrepreneurship" guise. Which sounds quite an interesting course...

    It's certainly not listed on UCAS for 2016. Maybe 2017...

    MEM has also gone (Materials, Economic and Management) though that was even smaller than EEM.

    The entrepreneurship thing may not be as far-fetched as I originally thought when I read it. It was certainly the Economics department that was no-longer keen for it to happen, so some sort of Engineering/Materials/SBS course could well be a thing (but not quite yet).

    They will indeed re-launch EEM as Engineering, Entrepreneurship and Management, but as a branch of specialisation at the start of 3rd year and no longer as a separate course.
