From individuals to businesses and governments, we all make choices every day. Economics is the science of choice, from the personal (Why do you buy what you do?) to the public (How do government policies affect consumer behaviour?). Business economics, meanwhile, is about solving specific problems within companies (How can we as a company get consumers to choose our product?). Understanding the choices that all these players make is essential in today’s globalising society, where consumer choices and business opportunities are multiplying by the hour.
You’ll not only learn the economic theory but will also develop the practical skills for analysing specific problems and the professional skills for presenting your solutions. You’ll be well-qualified to advise businesses, consumers and even policy makers on economic issues. This opens up a wide range of career opportunities to you and will help you succeed at whichever path you choose.
Although we are happy to be able to welcome students back on campus, we will continue to offer a variety of online experiences to help you get an idea of what it is like to study at the School of Business and Economics. For each programme, there is a student with whom you can chat, a Virtual Open Day that you can visit (including a 360-degree four-way tour), and we will continue to organise our Online Experience Days.
