Teesside University, Middlesbrough has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Course overview: This broad-based degree gives you a comprehensive understanding of business concepts and models with specialist knowledge of economics. Studying economics provides a greater awareness of, and ability to engage with, the economic, social and political world that impacts on all our lives. It is a subject that helps you to appreciate and work better within the wider environment. Employers in both private and public sectors identify that there are insufficient numbers of graduates with strong analytical, problem-solving and decision-making capabilities. Economics is a rigorous and highly relevant subject that develops these skills in abundance. Economics graduates are very much ‘work ready’ upon graduation and the healthy starting salaries enjoyed by economics graduates is testament to this. Employability: Graduate economists possess good writing skills, strong numerical and computational skills, as well as enhanced communication and presentational skills. It’s hardly surprising that they are found in a variety of fields including insurance and actuarial work, banking and finance, sales and marketing, as well as in more traditional public sector areas of public policy and treasury functions. We provide an environment that allows you to develop the extra practical employability characteristics that make you more attractive to employers in the job market. Our staff use their extensive business connections to provide many and varied opportunities to engage with potential employers through fairs, guest lecture sessions, live projects and site visits. In addition we offer a series of workshops and events in the first, second and third year that ensure all students are equipped with both degree-level subject knowledge plus the practical skills that employers are looking for in new graduate recruits.
