Overview

Modern economics covers a wide range of topics from inflation to the control of monopoly power, from the study of developing countries to the finance of multinational companies.

The list of final year options is wide and choice may be widened still further by choosing one final year module from outside the Business School or by submitting a dissertation or business project in place of one of the options. Graduates enter a wide range of occupations, including economics, accountancy, business or academic careers.

No previous study of economics is required or assumed. If you possess an A level in Mathematics, you should be aware that there is a Single Honours programme in Economics with Econometrics. If you wish to study economics, but would prefer a lower mathematical content in the programme, you should consider BA Business Economics.
