Business at the University of Bristol

There’s never been a more exciting time to study business, with global factors such as the pandemic, digitalisation and climate change influencing how businesses operate and adapt. At Bristol we bring the latest insight from research and industry into our programmes to ensure graduates are equipped to face not only today’s challenges, but tomorrow’s too.

Over 91% of our graduates are in graduate level jobs or further study after 15 months (Graduate Outcomes Survey 2020). Our alumni roles range from CEOs, to Marketing Directors, to Business Analysts, Operations Managers and Project Managers at companies varying from Amazon to the United Nations as well as government, third sector organisations and the Big 4 accounting firms.

You’ll learn from the brightest minds in academia, with 78% of research in our business disciplines rated as “world leading” or “internationally excellent” (REF 2014). Our academics work with major organisations including the Bank of England and the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, International Labour Organisation, the Advertising Standards Agency and the NHS.

Economics at the University of Bristol

The coronavirus pandemic was as much of an economic crisis as a health crisis. That’s why, there’s never been a more important time to study economics and become equipped with the skills to make a real-world impact, tackling global issues.

By joining one of the leading economics departments in the UK, the School of Economics at Bristol will prepare you for a successful future, thanks to a team of world-class academics renowned for their high quality of teaching and research.

With a distinctive focus and reputation: we combine innovative, policy-focused research and a firm commitment to public and policy engagement with high-level advances in economic theory, structural modelling and econometrics. All of our degrees are informed by our research and we’re proud to be ranked first for real-world impact (THE analysis of REF 2014).

By studying economics, you will become equipped with the technical skills and knowledge in high demand by employers, providing you a competitive edge in your chosen career. Over 92% of our graduates are in work or further study 15 months after graduation (Graduate Outcomes Survey 2020). Our graduates go on to work in a range of roles and sectors, recent graduate destinations include China Merchants Bank, KPMG, Ocado Group and Lloyds.

Our areas of speciality

Postgraduate research programmes

The most common qualification from a postgraduate research degree is a PhD. The University also offers a growing number of professional and extended doctoral programmes, as well as master's degrees by research.
