Economics and Management
Economics and Management (E&M) is a rigorous academic degree, developing high-level quantitative and qualitative skills in a vocationally–relevant subject area. Students benefit from the excellent facilities of the Saïd Business School, the location for much of the teaching and many other activities.
New College offers just three places in Economics and Management per year, so each student gets individual attention. At the same time, students are closely integrated with students on the College's Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) degree and they participate fully in the College community. The College facilitates interaction with both E&M alumni and MBA (graduate) students.
New College has two fellows in Management, Professors Mari Sako and Richard Whittington (see 'Academic Staff'). Richard Whittington has primary responsibility for the Economics and Management degree. Economics is taught primarily by the PPE tutors, Professor Dieter Helm, Dr Thomas Michielsen and Dr Richard Mash, and students studying Economics and Management attend the same economics tutorials and lectures as those reading PPE. We therefore appreciate students with the same lively interest in current affairs and similar issues to that of many PPE students.
Because of the limited number of places, we ask that students wanting deferred entry – i.e. entry for academic years later than the one immediately following the year of application – should make this clear during the application process, not later.
