At LSBU we will introduce you to the wider macro and microeconomic world. Our Economics with foundation year degree is a four-year course incorporating a built-in foundation year. On successful completion of year one, students will be well-prepared to explore more specialised areas of the economy, and develop their own economic models to forecast what the future holds. Our curriculum is informed by the challenges and tasks professional Economists face in a variety of industries. This allows us to equip you with key graduate skills, turning you into an educated, passionate and competitive graduate who will be successful in any career path you choose.
