Course Overview

You will learn techniques for addressing real world problems and policy-related issues and explore the behaviour of households, businesses and governments from a multidisciplinary perspective. You will also consider issues of social importance and examine real world phenomena, combining theoretical analysis with an up to date knowledge of current issues. With access to professional software tools such as Bloomberg to analyse and interpret real economic data, you will become confident in communicating complex business information to a range of audiences.

To gain valuable practical experience in the application of your learning, you can choose to take a placement year between years two and three of your studies.

What will this mean for my future?
