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.

Why this programme?

Economics looks at broader problems that relate to individuals, governments, and national as well as international economies. It’s a science that examines how markets work, how businesses and consumers behave, and how legislative and regulatory changes impact businesses and consumers. Business Economics covers economic problems within companies and how to solve them. You’ll develop the skills to examine economic issues from all angles and to come up with appropriate solutions.

In the Economics and Business Economics programme, you’ll analyse business problems using tools from both economics and business:

  • Economics: quantitative skills, economic modelling, information management, knowledge management, network economics
  • Business: strategy, finance, accounting, banking, managerial economics
