Economics at Glasgow dates back to Adam Smith, who was a Professor at the University in the 18th century and is widely renowned as the father of modern economics.
You will study the principles of microeconomics and macroeconomics, but you will also have the opportunity to apply economic concepts and models specifically to the decisions facing businesses. You will also have the opportunity to develop an interest in fields such as government policy, developing countries and international trade.
All Business Economics students have the opportunity to undertake the Professional Skills Programme, an ILM accredited extra-curricular activity. It is a free small-group based programme designed to improve professional skills, prepare you for work and to develop the attributes you need to excel in your career.
Our graduates of the Business Economics programme from University of Glasgow develop skills in research, analysis, communication, teamworking, decision making and problem solving. Recent graduates have been employed by HMRC, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Barclays, DESMI Africa and Taleveras Group, among many other organisations.
