Economics Bournemouth University

Our Economics degree provides you with an extensive knowledge of the fundamental aspects of economics study; essential for launching a career in the global financial community.

You’ll develop a theoretical and practical framework in accounting, finance and economics in year one, and at the end of the first year you’ll have the flexibility to transfer to another pathway. Year two extends the opportunity to study abroad at one of our international partner institutions; currently we have partners in Australia, Canada and Europe. In year three you’ll apply the analytical skills and theoretical knowledge forged in the classroom to a real-world context during a 30-week placement. The opportunity will see you secure career contacts, improve your resume, and ultimately enhance your employability.
