What's most important is that the Division ranks very highly in the UK. It is widely recognised for the high quality of both its research and teaching.

Southampton equipped me with the economics knowledge I needed to be successful in my current role. Learning how to use the Bloomberg Terminals in the tutorials definitely helped me in the recruitment process at Bloomberg
