About

Economics Successful businesses operate from a sound financial footing. They can quickly identify income sources, the costs of providing products and services and make informed decisions about their future. Economics will teach you how to use your aptitude for reason and analysis, to identify and communicate core problems affecting income and socio-economic conditions. As an economist, you will examine the choices that individuals, companies and governments have to make that affect not just business, commerce and finance but every aspect of our daily lives. You will have access to leading financial and statistical software used by global firms, such as Bloomberg and STATA and benefit from a friendly and supportive environment, with access to an award-winning Accounting, Finance and Economics (AFE) Student Society. There are opportunities to participate in business competitions and gain advice from successful entrepreneurs and business consultants. 

Politics There is ?politics? in almost everything we do. It is the study of power: who gets it, why they seek it, by what means they obtain it and what they use it for. Its principal focus is on power relations among individuals, social groups and nations. You will gain a firm grasp of political and current affairs, understand the news headlines, seeing beyond them to the real issues of politics, and be in a better position to comment upon and understand what the politicians are really saying. This course offers a varied and in-depth account of the nature of politics in the 21st century. The range of options available allows you to study the kind of politics that suits you. These may include issue politics, political thought and theory, area studies and international relations. You will also undertake practical skills training in advanced quantitative and qualitative analysis, to ensure you are fully prepared for the graduate job market.
