About this course

We make economic decisions every day, but how do these decisions affect others? How do the decisions made by businesses and financial institutions affect our society? This degree gives 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 study in lectures and small classes. Our facilities include the behavioural economics laboratory and the Bloomberg Trading Suite - a realistic trading room environment with 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)

  • econometrics (applying mathematical and statistical models to economic systems)

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