Course summary

This course will give you an in-depth working knowledge of both economics and accountancy. You'll be taught how to use the Bloomberg Trading Suite in your first year. You'll also be encouraged to obtain a Bloomberg Markets Concepts qualification.

This course is taught in conjunction with Southampton Business School. You'll build specialist knowledge of microeconomics (the behaviour of individuals and businesses), macroeconomics (the behaviour of the economy as a whole) and the main concepts of accountancy.

You'll also have the freedom to shape your studies by choosing optional modules to suit your interests or career plans. Topics include international banking, risk management or public economics.

You'll be taught in lectures and small classes, and have access to facilities including the behavioural economics laboratory. You'll also have access to the Bloomberg suite, which is a realistic trading-room environment with access to the most detailed financial data available.


You'll graduate with a wide range of transferable skills such as research, critical thinking, analysis and team working. Career skills are embedded at every stage of your course and some modules offer specific teaching in reasoning and communication.
