BSc (Hons) Economics & Management

Programme Overview

Developed by the London School of Economics (LSE), ranked 5th and 10th in the world for Economics and Management respectively (QS 2020), the BSc (Hons) Economics & Management programme is ideal for you if you have concurrent interests in economics and business/management studies, and wish to lay a strong foundation for a career in the corporate sector.

After developing a strong base in both sets of disciplines by studying micro and macro economics, accounting, psychology, marketing, international business, human resource and mathematics/statistics, you can go on to explore elective courses in entrepreneurship, social media, e-business, business analytics, finance or advanced economics.

Taught through interactive lectures, case studies, interdisciplinary projects and presentations, this programme will train you to become a successful strategist, economist or manager in the corporate world, across the full gamut of sectors from e-commerce and electronics to fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) and consulting.

Note: The Indian programme most closely comparable with the BSc (Honours) Economics & Management (E&M) programme is BA (Honours) Business Economics, or Bachelor of Business Economics (BBE). The comparison is a loose one, however, since the rigour of E&M far exceeds that of the BBE, as E&M is a global top 10 ranked programme. Since it receives academic direction from LSE, E&M follows its nomenclature too.

You are a good fit for this programme if:

  • You enjoy learning analytically and apply the knowledge that you gain to solve problems
  • You like the qualitative aspects of Economics, but not so much the quantitative ones
  • You wish to pursue an MBA and make a career in the corporate sector
  • You wish to further hone your already strong communication and analytical skills in order to become a successful entrepreneur or manager

Postgraduate study

If you perform well on this programme, your London School of Economics education and University of London degree will open up many bright postgraduate study prospects. Right after graduating, you could go on to a qualitative Economics Master’s programme, such as in Economics and Management, Behavioural Economics or Economics and Psychology, or to a Master’s in Management, in Management and Strategy or in Management and Digital Innovation, at the world’s leading institutions, or progress to a prestigious Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme in India. Alternatively, you could work for some time and still utilise the pedigree of your undergraduate academic background to get into a top-notch MBA programme overseas.


The Economics and Management programme will equip you with the rare combination of strong communication and analytical skills, making you a great fit for a very wide range of roles, especially those in the corporate sector. These will not only help you hit the ground running, but also chart a steep career trajectory in the world of work. Here are some of the leading sectors you can hope to work in.

The education I received at ISBF helped me validate my interest in Economics. I thoroughly enjoyed the practical approach followed towards teaching as it challenged me as an analytical individual.

I had the best time of my life at ISBF. Having studied the University of London curriculum in high school I didn’t want to invest my time into something that wouldn’t justify my past learnings. I found the perfect balance of the ideal college life, immensely application-based curriculum and the best of professors. I can’t thank ISBF enough for making me the person I am today.
