The BSc Economics programme enables you to understand modern economics, which covers a wide range of topics from inflation to the control of monopoly power, from the study of developing countries to the finance of multinational companies. The programme reflects that breadth of interest in a flexible course designed to cater both for the students who wish to study a broad curriculum and for those who may wish to specialise in a particular area. The first two years comprises of principles and intermediate modules. Successful completion of these modules enables you to acquire the basic tools and techniques required for formal economic analysis. The list of final year options is wide and choice may be widened further by choosing one final year module from outside the Business School or by submitting a dissertation or business project in place of one of the options. No previous study of economics is required or assumed. If you possess an A level in Mathematics, you should be aware that there is a Single Honours programme in Economics with Econometrics. If you wish to study economics, but would prefer a lower mathematical content in the programme, you should consider BA Business Economics.
