Throughout this course, we aspire to help you develop your knowledge and understanding of core economic theories and principles, in order to apply these to policy making and resource allocation scenarios. You’ll have the opportunity to develop your analytical skills through the study of econometrics and deepen your understanding of the global economy. The course offers a wide range of option modules, enabling you to pursue particular areas of interest such as sustainability, strategic management, financial modelling, globalisation and development economics.

Many of our economics tutors are members of the Royal Economic Society (RES)and undertake research in areas such as banking, international economics, international political economy and Islamic finance.

Nine of the top ten occupations held by economics graduates employed in the UK are in business, finance or HR professions.
