Course description

The highlights

  • This degree is accredited by the Chartered Institution for Securities and Investment (CISI), the largest and most widely respected professional body for the securities and investment industry in the UK
  • We help you build an essential toolkit for your career as a professional economist and financial analyst, including strategic decision-making skills that set you apart in the graduate job market
  • Our Bloomberg Financial Markets Lab brings an extra dimension to your learning, giving you exciting insights into working life on a trading floor
  • You’ll complete live financial consultancy and economic research projects with businesses and have the chance to take up placements and internships in the UK or overseas
  • Our strong employer networks mean you will interact with industry leaders, economics experts and senior finance professionals throughout your studies.

With professional accreditation and strong input from employers, this degree equips you to undertake economic research and analysis, handle complex financial data sources, diagnose problems and take the strategic decisions expected of an applied economist.

Your studies will cover a broad range of microeconomic and macroeconomic issues, quantitative methods, computing techniques and business performance concepts. We also give you a solid understanding of how various economic systems work, the impact of government policies and the performance of different economies worldwide.

Accreditation

Because the course is accredited by the Chartered Institution for Securities and Investment (CISI), it will stand you in good stead for achieving a globally recognised professional qualification alongside your degree. It is closely mapped against the Institution’s Introduction to Investment foundation qualification and all the practical knowledge you need to prepare for the CISI exam is embedded in our curriculum. This is your first step on the CISI qualification pathway and is also recognised by the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). It is particularly valuable if you are interested in a career in wealth management, operational investments, financial planning, compliance and risk, or stock broking. The additional qualification will strengthen your CV and you’ll also benefit from access to a wide range of CISI resources, networking events and professional development opportunities.
