About

Economics is key to understanding some of the critical questions facing our world. This BSc in Economics (Hons) at the De Montfort University will explore these questions while also examining some of the principles and theories that can help us to answer them.

The study of economics will also be supported by modules that provide students with an understanding of how to deal with and organise data in a comprehensive way, including modules in Financial Decision Making, New Directions in Economics, Econometrics, Financial Markets and Institutions and Behavioural Economics.

Develop transferable skills that are valued by professionals and industry experts, including well-evidenced empirical analysis and the ability to communicate economic ideas in reports and public audits.

Our Bloomberg Trading Room – one of the largest in a UK university – will give you a simulated experience on industry-standard software that is used by decision-makers in finance.

Graduate careers
