Course summary

Starting university is an exciting time. Studying Economics at LSBU is even more exciting. Our students enjoy our economics courses – that's why we’re 1st for course satisfaction, teaching satisfaction and feedback satisfaction in Economics in London (Guardian University League Tables 2021). Here, we teach real economics: we show you the factors which shape the current economic climate and discuss the theories which can explain recent trends. From questioning fundamental economic concepts by reviewing country or industry case studies, right through to developing economic models to forecast what the future holds, you apply economics from the first day you’re with us. We take you on an exciting journey of exploring economic ideas, schools of thought and historic events which have led the world economy to where it is today. From sustainability to cryptocurrencies, the BSc Economics introduces you to the vast range of topics which drive the economy. And then we give you a glimpse of the future, leaving it to up to you to make your own critical judgement of what is yet to come. Our curriculum is informed by the challenges and tasks professional Economists face in a variety of industries. This means we equip you with the skills you need, turning you into an educated, passionate and competitive graduate who will be successful in any career path you choose.
