BSc or BA Management/Economics watch

    • Thread Starter


    Am visiting a uni on an Applicant Day soon and have applied for BSc Management with a year in industry at this particular uni. However, I have discovered that said uni also offers a BA in Economics and Management.

    The other courses I have applied for are all Management with Marketing, which I feel may be more useful and interesting than pure Management, but is not offered by this uni - thus I am investigating the possibility of asking whether I would be able to change my choice to the other course.

    I study Economics at A-Level and am really interested by it, and the prospect of a course where I am allowed to get up to speed with the maths skills involved (I do not take Maths at A-Level, but got a B at GCSE) is tantalising. The course does not seem to have as much mathematical rigour as BSc Economics courses.

    Which of the two courses would be more respected by employers in a vaguely business related context? Would the addition of Economics but making the course a BA would give me the edge, or should I not bother?
