About this course

We make economic decisions every day of our lives, but how do these decisions affect others? How do the decisions of businesses and financial institutions affect our society? This degree will give you an in-depth understanding of economic theory and the skills you need to work in sectors like finance, commerce and industry.

You'll learn from experts whose research has influenced international policy. You'll be taught in lectures and small classes, and have access to facilities including the behavioural economics laboratory and the Bloomberg Trading Suite suite - a realistic trading-room environment with access to the most detailed financial data available.

You'll gain a specialist knowledge of microeconomics (the behaviour of individuals and businesses), macroeconomics (the behaviour of the economy as a whole) and econometrics (applying mathematical and statistical models to economic systems).

You'll also have the freedom to shape your studies by choosing optional modules - such as international banking, risk management or public economics - to suit your interests or career plans.
