BA(Hons) Economics (with Foundation Year) is a modern applied course that focuses on applying the latest post-crisis economic theory to real and relevant problems. It's accredited by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), giving valuable exemptions from professional exams. Our modules are informed by a pluralist approach to economic thinking and alternative schools of thought that are shaping economics. These include new-institutional economics, happiness economics, and evolutionary economics. Learning this way will give you a deeper understanding of real-world economic relationships and make you attractive to employers. Analyse numerous real-world issues, including irrational behaviour, how firms really operate, the cost of continued economic growth and sustainability, post-crisis banking, development and migration. Your analysis will include an integral pure mathematics strand. With an emphasis on skills development and real-world experience, this course gives you regular access to industry through placements, field trips and guest lectures. Our graduates go on to successful careers in banking, finance, accountancy, industry, retail, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and government. They work as Financial Analysts, Stockbrokers and Pricing Analysts. They work across private and public sector organisations including Hargreaves Lansdown (stockbroker), HM Treasury, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst and Young, Lloyds Banking Group, HSBC, Warner Music UK and Rolls Royce.
