Economics for the real world
With today’s businesses having to do more with less, implementing economic theory is key. This is why we put the practical application of economics at the heart of our economics degree.
By cutting away the abstract ideas and positioning economics firmly in the real world, we can help you apply advanced economics in your chosen field. Based on such secure foundations, our economics degree is ideal for students, with a good level of numeracy, to learn the core economics techniques they need to progress their career.
As the first university in the UK to offer a master’s in applied economics online, this course gives those unable to interrupt their careers to attend campus, a unique opportunity to make their mark.
