Our curriculum is similar to the Bachelor's in Organisational Sciences offered on the Parisian campus (also called Licence Sciences des Organisations (LSO)). Especially designed for students with an international profile, our degree in London is taught entirely in English and includes the study of at least one foreign language. We offer the best of the British and French university systems: a high number of contact hours, an interdisciplinary curriculum, language proficiency, small-group tuition and personalised guidance.
In Year 1 and Year 2's, the curriculum is designed to equip students with the fundamentals of five subject areas:
- Economics: Microeconomy, Macroeconomy, Economic aspects of globalisation
- Management: Introduction to General Management, Financial and Management Accounting, History of Managemen
- Quantitative disciplines: Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Sciences
- Social Sciences and Law: Political Sciences, Sociology, Global Contemporary Issues and Law (Public Law, Contract Law, etc.)
- Language and Communication
We put a real emphasis on language proficiency and all our students must study at least one foreign language during their time with us. Language and professional communication training (English and Communication modules + a mandatory foreign language) is reinforced through optional study skills workshops provided to the students. Extra support is available with regular office hours offered by the English and Communication lecturers.
Foreign language classes are held at UCL:
BEM students spend 17 to 22 hours per week in class, almost twice the number of contact hours offered at most UK universities. This allows our students to spend more time benefitting from the experience of our lecturers. The academic year is divided into two semesters, each comprising 12 weeks of classes, one reading week and one exam week. Classes are typically 90 minutes-long; students are assessed through continuous assessments and final exams.
The Bachelor’s in Economics and Management is a three-year programme with competitive international mobility opportunities. Students spend at least the first years of their Bachelor’s degree in London.
While the default option is that students spend all three years in London to benefit from the uniqueness of our degree, several other options are available in the third year. First of all, students need to choose the major they want to specialise in between Management, Economics or Social Sciences. We offer the major Management on our London campus, so students can spend the third year with us and continue to benefit from the international outlook of our degree and location. Or, students can transfer to our parent university in Paris for another major or choose from one of our 315 partner universities worldwide and split their third year by doing a semester abroad.
Whatever it is you want to do and wherever in the world you want to do it, Dauphine - PSL can get you there.
