Economics is about understanding the choices consumers and producers make.

It allows you to explore how a range of factors influence decision-making at both individual and society level, and what the overall impact is upon allocating resources within the economy.

Economics is essential for understanding topics like:

  • how and why governments allocate resources
  • tackling climate change, global crises and productivity
  • policy's impact on income equality
  • how technology and globalisation affect economic outcomes

You'll learn how to analyse complex data, apply theoretical knowledge and solve quantitative problems. These skills will help you to address real-life micro and macroeconomic challenges.

Graduates often work as economists, financial or business analysts, accountants and tax professionals.

All of our economics courses have the option of a professional placement and/or study abroad experience.
