In this course, you will develop high-level analytical and quantitative skills keenly valued by employers in many fields, including investment banking, economic analysis, consultancy and public policy. The 2008 financial crisis had a seismic effect not just on the global economy but also on the study of economics. Our Economics BSc (Hons) takes a contemporary, applied approach, combining both traditional and post-2008 theory to analyse real-world issues.
Through its focus on developing the analytical, quantitative and research skills employers require, this course gives you an advantage in fields such as investment banking, insurance and risk management, economic analysis (e.g. for large corporations, NGOs and the Civil Service), business consultancy and economic policy. It also gives you a solid foundation for further study in economics and related disciplines, for example on our Economics and Finance MSc.
Some of the roles related to an economics degree include: Actuarial analyst; Chartered accountant; Chartered certified accountant; Chartered public finance accountant; Data analyst; Economist; Financial risk analyst; Forensic accountant; Investment analyst etc.
