This degree will advance your knowledge, and give you skills needed to make your mark out in the field. Leicester's School of Business has an international reputation for being at the forefront of innovation in economic science, and you will be among the first to study at our new £16 million Brookfield campus, with state-of-the-art learning and facilities exclusive to Leicester School of Business students. Our Economics and Econometrics BSc focuses on the core areas of microeconomics and macroeconomics and explores the application of mathematics and statistics to core areas of economics. Economic issues occupy the news, capture our attention and affect our everyday lives. This course offers a comprehensive and critical understanding of the ideas, concepts and issues central to economics and econometrics, enabling you to better understand these issues and the world around you. Our Economics and Econometrics degree will prepare you for specialist quantitatively orientated careers in economics, research and forecasting.
