Course summary

**OVERVIEW**Businesses and governments rely on economists to help them examine issues, identify trends and deal with financial uncertainty. Joining us, you’ll explore how organisations and individuals invest and allocate their resources.Over three years, we’ll challenge you to think about choices people make and how those decisions affect every aspect of our lives. You’ll explore everything from employment to distribution of wealth, government spending to international trade.**Boosting your employability**To make sure our teaching tackles the most current challenges, we work in partnership with local government and companies such as investment platform, AJ Bell. You’ll explore a diverse range of areas including policy, cryptocurrencies and economic forecasting.In response to industry need, we’ve also introduced a computer coding module. Moving forward, employers will expect graduates to be confident in this area. It’s not something all universities offer, but we know it’s an important part of learning to handle data in all shapes and forms.**Teaching influenced by experience**We have an excellent mix of academics leading in their area and lecturers who have had successful careers in industry before teaching. In the team, there is a former treasury adviser, chartered accountant, chartered tax adviser, and the former head of research and policy at GM Chamber of Commerce.Traditionally this sector was made up of predominantly men. But there is a shift to more women moving into economics roles, which we support through our large number of female staff who come with industry experience, including our head of department.**Choose a placement or study abroad**The course offers real flexibility as you will enrol on the three-year course and then decide if a placement or overseas study is right for you once you have started your studies.
