Hey,

I study Management at the University of Bath and have taken modules in both Economics and Entrepreneurship & Innovation so hopefully I can help a bit

The decision really depends on what you enjoy most, because you will be studying it for 3 years and either course will open up opportunities for careers in Management as they both fall under the umbrella of business.

When I was applying for placements, I was competing with students who were studying all different variations of Management and, therefore, I got the impression that the specifics of my course didn’t really matter that much. I found that employers saw my degree as a given and placed more importance on extra-curricular activities that demonstrated my interest in the job.

If you are set on starting up your own business, a course like entrepreneurship and innovation would probably be really valuable. However, if you opted for economics, there are opportunities to explore entrepreneurship as part of your wider university experience through e.g. societies such as Bath Entrepreneurs. Similarly, you could get involved in managing a society’s finances to gain experience in economics.

Personally, I chose to study Management in its broadest form because I didn't know what I would enjoy most and there is always the chance to specialise at a later date. If I had wanted, I could have tailored my degree to cover more economics than anything else, or more modules relating to innovation.

I would encourage you to really look into the modules on these different courses as this determines how much you will enjoy your day-to-day studies.

Hope this helps and just quote me if you have any more questions!

Alice,
3rd Year Management Student, University of Bath
