Sheffield is one of only a few universities in the north of England with a stand-alone economics department. So the department is large enough to cover a lot of specialist topics, which means more choice for you. Our staff are internationally respected. They advise UK government departments and international organisations such as the World Bank.
This combination of subjects is a sound choice if you want a career as an economist or in accounting and finance. It covers applied economic analysis and the tools and techniques you need for an understanding of finance. So you will need A Level maths, or an acceptable equivalent.
Some of our graduates become professional economists. Others go into related professions such as banking, insurance and accounting. Some work for organisations such as Deloitte, Nestle, Rolls-Royce, the Office of Budget Responsibility and the Houses of Parliament.
