  • Course description
    This course is delivered by the AACSB-accredited Business School, an accreditation attained by fewer than 5% of business schools worldwide. It recognises our focus on excellence in all areas. Economics is not just money or banking, it is a way of thinking and understanding human action under conditions of uncertainty and scarcity. In a world of fast-paced capital movements, quantitative easing, macroeconomic instability, Brexit and its effect on trade, and continuing issues of the euro as a monetary union, it is crucial to understand what economics means at a basic level. This course covers the fundamentals of economics taught from a quantitative basis, including an understanding of economic thinking and systems, an appreciation of financial approaches, and related mathematical, statistical, and analytical skills essential for starting a career in the global economic and financial community. The second year offers the opportunity to study abroad, at one of our international partner institutions during the second semester. Currently we have partners in Australia, Canada and Europe. In year three you’ll get the opportunity to undertake an optional 30-week placement in the UK or abroad, allowing you to secure career contacts, improve your CV, and ultimately enhance your employability. Our graduates are now working as economic and financial analysts, data analysts, business development advisers, accountants and executives for companies such as Adidas UK Ltd, Apple, Bank of New York Mellon, BMW Financial Services, British Airways, Enterprise, and Hayes.
