Gain a thorough grounding in economics as part of a degree with real-world relevance at its core.
Topics include digitisation and technological change, social inequality, climate change, financial crises, growth, and the effects of pandemics like COVID-19. You’ll learn how sophisticated tools are used to apply economic theory to these global issues.
We also have links with major international businesses so you can get real industry experience on placement with the likes of Bosch, BMW, Siemens and Disney, or spend a year with the Government Economic Service or the Office for National Statistics.
In your final year, you’ll also have the chance to take an internship (that’s in addition to the extra option of studying abroad or spending a year on placement in industry). It’s an amazing opportunity to apply your knowledge in a real working environment – and enhance your employability at the same time.
This degree shares a common first year with our BA Business Economics programme so you can choose to switch direction in the second year if you develop a particular area of interest.
