  • This course is accredited by leading professional bodies the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) (for Sept 2020 entry only), and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), meaning the course is mapped against the skills employers are looking for and provides you with additional awards and/or exemptions towards professional body memberships

  • To complement your economics knowledge and boost your career prospects, you’ll also develop broader business, research and analytical skills

Hands-on learning

Engaging with employers throughout your studies, you’ll develop the full toolkit of skills that the applied economist needs for business or organisational consultancy. You’ll solve real problems for real organisations, deepening your understanding of the wider business world.

We encourage and support you to take an optional year-long work placement or summer internship to give you a better understanding of how economic analysis can improve organisational performance and practice. Our students have secured placements in roles such as data analyst.
