Description

Internationalisation of the world economy and the policy challenges it has posed for business and public decision-makers have increased the demand for economics graduates. This demand is evident in a wide range of national and international institutions, including central banks and finance ministries, commercial and investment banks, rating agencies, and business organisations. Opportunities are also available in international governmental and non-governmental organisations, central and local government departments, and economics and business media.

These employers reflect an ever-increasing demand for high-quality, evidence-based decision making that requires competence in applied economics and state-of-the-art data analysis.

This programme will enable you to respond to this increasing demand by combining solid training in theory and method with stimulating exposure to economics and financial data sources. The programme weaves a three-way linkage between business and financial economics theory, data analysis, and application of theory and method to policy and strategy issues in the world of business and finance.

The programme has a number of distinctive features. These include structured conversion, which will enable you to combine theory and evidence to produce evidence-based work, and rigorous application, enabling you to combine theory and evidence to develop evidence-based answers to economic and business issues. You will also become competent in data access and analysis, enabling you to access, manage and analyse data on a wide range of economic and business issues. A work placement will give you the opportunity to apply your knowledge and skills and prepare for work as a professional economist.

We are proud to say that we are first for student course satisfaction in London for Economics, according to both the Guardian and the Complete University Guide 2016 league tables.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To equip you with a sound knowledge of business and financial economics, which will help improve your analytical and problem-solving skills
  • To introduce you to new insights in the study of business and financial economics, which will develop your critical- and creative-thinking skills
  • To enable you to respond to the increasing demand for economics graduates by developing your skills and competence in business and financial economics.
