Full-time | Four years with a placement option
Economics shapes the world we live in. From the gender pay gap to the causes of financial crashes, the impact of economics plays a critical role in all our lives.
On this course you will learn to analyse and measure real economic issues based on a knowledge of economic theory, develop an understanding of how economic policy is formulated and gain the analytical and critical evaluation skills to recognise how national and global issues affect the performance of a business.
You will study a range of areas, including Applied Techniques for Economists, Econometrics, Intermediate Micro and Macroeconomics and International Trade. Our Trading Room will give you a simulated experience on the same information platform used by leading decision-makers in finance, business and government.
Our graduates have gone on to careers in globally-renowned organisations, such as Business Analyst at Deutsche Bank, Audit Associate at KPMG, and Financial Analyst at PwC.
Develop practical skills that are in demand by employers, such as mathematical and statistical analysis, problem-solving and the ability to explain and analyse complex data.
Our DMU Works team will help you gain the skills and qualities that today’s employers are looking for through placement opportunities with local, national and global companies. Economics students have gone on to work for the Government Economic Service, the UK's largest single employer of economists.
Enjoy an international experience with DMU Global – on these trips you will visit sites like the Berlin Wall Memorial where you will gain an understanding of economics to explain current events, and to inform opinion on key European issues.
