The Bachelor in Economics and Management is an exclusive three-year multidisciplinary degree focusing on modern international business from a variety of key perspectives.

The objective of the degree is to provide students with a solid foundation in mathematics and statistics, control of economic quantitative techniques and scientific management methods (human resources and accounting) as well as marketing and legal aspects related to the structure and activities of companies on a global scale.

For the first two years of the programme, students will get acquainted with the theoretical and statistical tools of economics and management and simultaneously enhance their basic historical and institutional knowledge. In the third year, they will explore how this scientific knowledge can be applied and interpreted through several intensive courses such as international economy, industrial economics, the European economy, growth and economic policies, analytical accounting, marketing and financial management.

As language plays a major part in overcoming cultural challenges, this programme is enriched with one foreign language option (Arabic, Spanish, German, Chinese or Italian), in addition to English. Students will get to expand their cultural horizons and open new doors through developing their language skills.

The programme faculty are all internationally renowned professors whose teaching methodology goes beyond the traditional forms of teaching to ensure a balanced and well-rounded learning experience. By the end of the programme, students will master the tools used in these disciplines to analyse real economic issues and challenges.

This programme provides numerous opportunities across a spectrum of industries including the public sector, enterprise services, financial institutions, banks and insurance companies as well as multinational corporations. Career options include positions in International Organisations (e.g. OECD, WTO), economic analysts, market and sales analysts in the private and public sector and financial managers in corporate entities. This degree also provides graduates with several options to pursue further academic studies at Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi’s Master in Banking and Finance: Law and Regulations of Banking and Financial Systems, Master in Marketing, Management, Communication, Media, Master in Health Economics, Master in Applied Foreign Languages: Specialty Management and International Business or in other overseas institutions as well.
