Management Studies is a dynamic degree where students have the opportunity to study the modern economy and how it functions.
Below you will find information about the specific degree course offered by Oxford University to study Economics and Management, how to prepare, and how Oxbridge Interviews can help you with your application.BOOK COURSE
Cambridge University do not offer an undergraduate degree in Management Studies.
However, students do have the option to transfer to a Master’s in Management Studies after two or three years of studying another subject.
Oxford University offers a joint course in Economics and Management that is three years long.
The application process is extremely competitive with only 6% of applications successful. To be offered a place, you generally need to get A*AA at A Level (or equivalent) and A-level Mathematics is a requirement.
To prepare for your Management Studies application, you must demonstrate your motivation for the subject and specific interests. You can do this by reading beyond your school curriculum. Our interviewers recommend:
- 'Scale and Scope: The Dynamics of Industrial Capitalism’ by Alfred D. Chandler Jr.
- 'Foundations of Corporate Success: How Business Strategies Add Value' by John Kay
Practice interviews for Management Studies applications are critical. You wouldn’t sit an exam without doing a mock, so don’t place yourself in an interview without having experienced a practice interview first.
Applicants for Economics and Management Studies at Oxford are required to sit the Thinking Skills Assessment (TSA).Learn more about the TSA
