Economics at Manchester Metropolitan University - UCAS

Course summary

OVERVIEW Businesses and governments rely on economists to help them examine issues, identify trends and deal with financial uncertainty. By studying our BA/BSc (Hons) Economics degree, you’ll explore how organisations and individuals invest and allocate their resources. Throughout the course, we’ll encourage you to think about choices people make and how those decisions affect every aspect of our lives. You’ll explore everything from employment to distribution of wealth and government spending to international trade. We work in partnership with local government and business leaders to make sure our teaching tackles the most current challenges. This will help you understand more about the global business environment and the role economists play. Teaching influenced by experience We have an outstanding group of leading academics and lecturers who have had successful careers in industry before teaching. You’ll be part of a department that celebrates diversity in its staff and students. We have a large number of female staff within a discipline traditionally thought to be male-dominated. This enables us to provide you with a transformative educational experience. FEATURES AND BENEFITS
