Related to everything from banking and finance, to public policy, education and healthcare, this course equips you to navigate a future career in a range of sectors. Our course will dynamically introduce you to economic theory and its core concepts so you gain a deep knowledge of economic forces like wealth and income creation, allocation of resources, production and consumption of goods, alongside others. A BA in economics can lead to a wide range of careers, including roles like business analysts, financial policy advisors and economic consultants. Build your analytical and quantitative skills. You’ll be taught by active researchers, widely published in the areas of microeconomics, behavioural and experimental economics, and econometrics. You’ll have access to a number of cutting-edge business resources which include the Chartered Management Institute’s Management Direct Resource Hub, Datastream, Bloomberg financial software, and our state-of-the-art Financial Markets Lab. Our economics course will equip you with subject-specific as well as transferable skills that are highly sought-after across different industries.

Combine that with our industry links and the network you will develop during your course, and a fulfilling career awaits. We believe work placements are invaluable in preparing you for a career in economics and we’ll give you the choice of two optional placements. You can choose to do a 36 week sandwich placement in year 3, as part of a 4 year degree, or two 18 week summer placements that’ll allow you to complete your degree in 3 years. We know sometimes you’ll need assistance and support when it comes to your studies. During your time with us you’ll get assistance from a Personal Tutor.
