About

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.

All 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 develop skills in research, analysis, communication, teamworking, decision making and problem solving. Recent graduates have been employed by Ernst & Young, Morgan Stanley, Shell, Scottish Government, National Australia Group Europe and Hays PLC, among many other organisations.
