Economics & Management

The combination of Economics and Management provides a springboard for a wide range of future careers.

You’ll obtain a strong theoretical foundation in both subjects, as well as an understanding of their application to business, government, policy and industry. You’ll develop a strong skill set in both Economics and Management, and you can specialize in one or the other depending on your interests.

For further information about the course at Oxford, see the Department of Economics website and the Economics and Management page on the Oxford University website.

The Course at Keble

Keble is a great place for Economics and Management.  We have two Tutorial Fellows in Economics and another in Management – so between them they can cover a wide range of the core course. Additional teaching resources are brought in as needed.

We admit around six students a year – one of the larger cohorts among the colleges. Added to the eight students a year who do Philosophy, Politics and Economics, that means that there’s a big enough group to support all kinds of debate and discussion. Our students come from all kinds of backgrounds and they create a lively and dynamic atmosphere.

On top of that, there’s a big graduate community in the MBA, Executive MBA and Financial Economics programmes. There’s a new development that we hope will make Keble particularly strong in business and management, the arrival of Oxford Sciences Innovation – a company investing in spin-outs from the University. Their main offices will be in the new H B Allen Centre at Keble.  Our aim is to take advantage of their presence to raise awareness of the possibilities start-ups offer graduates, but maybe also undergraduates.

Our library is very well stocked and we regularly update books and other resources in response to student and faculty demand and changes in the curriculum.
