Economics Brunel University London

This general course will develop your understanding of key economic aspects and tools with emphasis on the relationship between theory and real-world examples.

Our Economics degree is flexible and you’ll have a range of career prospects such as an economics analyst or a professional forecaster. Your studies will include a module on econometrics to help you to develop the data modelling skills using computer programmes – a skill highly valued by finance and investment employers.
