n a globalised world, the importance of understanding economic principles and their impact on business is more relevant than ever before.

You will have the opportunity to develop a solid understanding of economics alongside subjects which will help enhance your knowledge of business organisations. Key core modules include Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, International Economics and International Business Environment.
