The Bachelor’s in Economics and Management (BEM) curriculum is rigorous and broad.
Our curriculum is similar to the Bachelor's in Organisations Sciences held in Paris university (also called Licence Sciences des Organisations). For students with an international outlook, the course is taught entirely in English and includes the study of at least one foreign language. We wear our French influence on our sleeve, with rigorous coursework and long contact hours.
BEM London's curriculum is designed to give students the fundamental knowledge, skills and techniques they need in Economics, Management and Social Sciences to successfully complete the third and final year of their Bachelor's degree. Our curriculum includes:
- Economics modules: Microeconomy, Macroeconomy, Economic aspects of globalisation
- Quantitative disciplines: Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Sciences
- Management modules: Introduction to General Management, Financial and Management Accounting, History of Management
- Social Sciences modules: Political Sciences, Sociology, Contemporary Issues and Law (Public Law, Contract Law, etc.)
In-keeping with Dauphine - PSL's vision, the BEM programme is career-oriented. Year 2 of the programme offers students an elective course entitled Planning for the future: a personal and professional project, designed to help students express and structure their academic and professional goals.
BEM London students spend from 17 to 22 hours per week in class, almost twice the contact hours of most UK universities - which allows our students to have more time with lecturers, ask questions, have office hours, etc. The academic year is divided into two semesters, each comprising 12 weeks of classes, 1 study week and 1 exam week. Classes are typically 90 minutes-long; students are assessed through continuous assessments and final exams.
We put a real emphasis on language proficiency and all of our students must study at least one foreign language during their time with us. Language and professional communication training (English communication skills + foreign language mandatory) is reinforced through workshops adapted to each student level. Foreign language classes are held at the UCL Center of Languages & International Education (CLIE). 9 languages are on offer, with courses available for up to 7 different levels of proficiency and teaching includes on-campus classes at UCL, language labs and online self-evaluation exercises.
Our Bachelor's in Economics and Management comprises of three years of study, delivered in London.
Due to Brexit and current restrictions on visas, unfortunately, the 2021-22 newly-admitted students who do not hold a British citizenship/settled status will enrol for a maximum of three semesters at Dauphine London. They will spend at least the first year of their Bachelor’s degree in London and after that, two options will be offered:
- split the second year between London for Semester 1 and Paris for Semester 2,
- or spend the second year in Madrid at our university partner, University Carlos III de Madrid (selection based upon Spanish level).
We are currently engaged in the process of registering with the Office for Students (OfS) and should be able to sponsor three-years visas shortly.
* At the moment, only permanent UK residents and students with indefinite leave to remain/settled status will be able to spend the whole programme in London
