HC Deb 07 December 1961 vol 650 cc180-1W
49. Mr. Proudfoot

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many students at universities are taking business and management courses, respectively; and what proportion of students they represent.

Mr. Brooke

Management studies are not generally treated in the universities as an undergraduate subject, though there is a wide range of courses in subjects such as commerce, economics, law, etc., which are disciplines pertinent to management. In 1960–61 there were about 1,200 students taking postgraduate courses in management or allied subjects, and I understand that in addition Bristol, Cambridge and Leeds are, with industrial help, developing comparable courses.
