Year One:
In the first year you will get an introduction into micro and macroeconomics, as well as being equipped with the necessary quantitative and academic skills to succeed not only in your studies, but more importantly in your future careers. Furthermore, you will get a wider perspective with an introduction to accounting and the theory and practice of entrepreneurship. Managers need to be able to understand the information provided by accountants and some might opt to found their own business.

Year Two:
In the second year you study economics at a more advanced level. You learn how to undertake financial planning in a business and how to do research. You also find out how to develop a business. Furthermore, you will study game theory (Where you learn how to act strategically, taking possible actions of others into account.), and how to undertake data research. As with all CSM courses a workplace module is also included in the second year of study to prepare students for their careers after completing their studies.

Year Three:
The third year focuses on applying economics, but also explores strategic management. Again there will be the opportunity to specialise in areas like public economics (which is all about the economic tools important for governments) and monetary economics (Why and how money is important and what central banks do).
