Finance with economics isn't just about the numbers, it's about analysing and interpreting those numbers to understand the world and businesses around you. From financial management to applied econometrics, our Finance with Economics BSc will guide you through these issues and help you formulate the critical decisions needed in your chosen career. You'll explore the theory and practice of financial economics and most importantly, it's application in real-life cases. You'll study micro- and macroeconomics, advanced corporate finance, financial management and applied economics to build a solid foundation of both finance and economics and their intertwined application. We'll give you the space to grasp new ideas and explore and develop your own areas of interest. Your learning won't just be in the lecture theatre – we have an enthusiastic community of economics at ARU, allowing you plenty of opportunity to discuss the topics of the day. Our ‘Economics in the pub’ social event set up by staff and students, give historical and theoretical context to casual debates on big but divisive ideas such as Brexit, financial markets – even fractional reserve banking if you're really keen. You can also opt to take a placement year in industry, giving you the chance to put theory into practice and gain valuable workplace experience before you embark on your career.
