This degree will develop your analytical and problem-solving skills, also giving you the confidence to speak another language in a variety of settings. Economics graduates that can apply their skills overseas have never been more sought after, opening up exciting new horizons for a successful international career. Responsible economics Every decision we make, as individuals and right up to the level of global business and government, is based on scarcity and choice. The world has limited resources – and they’re becoming more limited every day. ‘Responsible’ means making sure those resources are used strategically and fairly to make people and society as a whole better off. In the Department of Economics within the University of Birmingham Business School, we study Responsible Economics, and you will be involved in our research from the start. We take learning to the next level, applying what is taught in lectures and seminars to real life problems and being able to communicate findings to stakeholders. In your first two years of study you will focus on core theory, applied economics and quantitative techniques. This provides you with the key skills needed to be an economist. Your third year is spent abroad at one of our partner universities and is conditional upon you achieving the necessary grades. Your tutor will help you to choose the right course for you. In your final year you will have the chance to focus on areas that reflect your interests, take modules in Economic Theory and the Spanish Language and take advantage of the specialist research conducted by our staff. As well as learning the detail of your subject, you will develop the all-round skills needed for a modern working world - critical thinking, problem solving, communication, and creativity. For many students this is a big transition but you can be reassured that right across campus support and help is available if you need it. University is a time for self-discovery and adventure - shape your own experience and discover who you are. Birmingham Business School continues to climb the rankings for Economics courses and is currently ranked 16th in the Complete University Guide for 2024.
