Economics and Administration

 If you’re concerned your current education hasn’t prepared you with the entry requirements for the program you want, a foundation year may be the solution. This extra year of study at a university is for students who may have good grades, but have taken the wrong classes. It is also appropriate for those with grades that aren’t quite where they should be. Finally, students with an unrecognized degree or qualification from another country often benefit from this year.

What is a Foundation Year in Economics and Administration? This program gives students the preparation they need to succeed in an advanced degree program. It prepares them with further exposure to the elements of economic studies. The classes associated with this program are often introductory classes, such as Introduction to Business Management or Introduction to Information Technology. A study of the fundamentals of mathematics, economics, business communication, and administrative responsibilities can also be expected.

Students are drawn to this program for a number of reasons. They may feel hesitant to pursue advanced degrees without knowing what to expect. Some students need an extra year to obtain the qualifications necessary to move into programs of their choice.

The cost of this program will vary from one school to another, but students may be able to use loans to cover fees just as they would for their degree programs. Students can usually plan to spend a full academic year completing the program.

Students who have completed a Foundation Year in Economics and Administration are often on the path toward careers with titles such as economic analyst, financial analyst, and business development specialist. These careers often include tasks such as monitoring fiscal activity, investigating economic crimes, or heading up a community’s business expansion plan. With the benefit of the extra foundation year, graduates from advanced degree programs are often in high demand and have an edge against their competition when applying for jobs.

There are many opportunities available for students who hope to participate in this program. Typically, the program is completed at the same school where students hope to complete their degrees.
