You will enjoy these courses if you are interested in understanding how people make decisions about resource allocation at individual, corporate and national level; how markets work, how they fail and what can be done about it.
If you are scientifically minded and good at maths, you will enjoy the rigorous analytical approach we take to understanding how the economy works.
Our courses will suit you if, while pursuing an economics degree, you wish to study related disciplines such as accounting, finance, management, philosophy or politics as an integrated part of that degree (either as part of a Joint Honours degree or as optional units within a Single Honours degree).
