Course summary

Combine economics with a focus on how today’s business managers make decisions. You will learn to apply the concepts and analytical tools of economics to a diverse range of real-world problems, while learning to construct arguments and effectively communicate to a wide range of audiences. The ability to understand and assess the impact of public policy on industry and society, as well as diverse business issues such as digitisation and technological change, the development of market economies, social inequality, and Brexit, ensures you will have the skills and knowledge that are attractive to a range of employers across both public and private sectors. In your final year, you will also have the chance to spend three months on an internship. This is in addition to the extra option of studying abroad or spending a year on placement in industry.
