Description

Management will develop your understanding of modern, complex business organisations and equip you with the skills needed to manage them. A combination of core and optional modules will introduce you to key topics such as accounting practices, organisational behaviour and marketing, as well as giving you the freedom to develop specialist knowledge of topics that interest you such as corporate social responsibility, logistics or employment law.
What’s the difference between belief and knowledge? Why are we here? How do we know what we know – and can we ever know anything at all? Philosophy at Leeds explores fundamental questions about how we understand the world. Through core and optional modules you’ll learn how to construct arguments and study key topics such as ethics and logic, as well as specialist knowledge in topics from ancient and moral philosophy to the ethics of life and death, philosophy of language or aesthetics.

Course programme

A Joint Honours degree allows you to study the same core topics as students on each Single Honours course, but you’ll take fewer options and discovery modules so you can fit in both subjects. You’ll also undertake a major research project in either subject in your final year.


Management

You’ll develop your contextual knowledge and key skills in your first year, when core modules introduce you to accounting practices, economics in business and organisational behaviour. In the following year you’ll build on this knowledge, with core modules on topics like marketing and operations management, while choosing from optional modules. You’ll continue to benefit from this choice in your final year, as well as studying business strategy and operations management.

Philosophy

Core modules in your first year will introduce you to topics such as ethics and logic and teach you to construct arguments. This will lay the foundation for the next two years, where you’ll continue to take a broad approach to philosophy by choosing modules from areas such as logic and language, philosophy of science, mind and knowledge or history of philosophy. By your final year you will also have highly developed research and analytical skills.
