Economics relates to every aspect of our lives, from the decisions we make as individuals to the structures created by governments and companies. Economics will give you new perspectives on some of the most pressing and challenging problems and choices facing the world today. As an economist you will develop the skills to understand how consumers and firms interact and behave, how government policy affects the economy and how financial systems operate. By providing an in-depth analysis of firms’ decision making in a variety of settings, economics can help business managers make better pricing, production and investment decisions. This flexible course allows you to specialise in the final year by choosing optional modules that are most suited to your career aspirations.
