Economics is key to understanding some of the critical questions facing our world. This course will explore these questions while also examining some of the principles and theories that can help us to answer them.
The study of economics will also be supported by modules that provide students with an understanding of how to deal with and organise data in a comprehensive way, including modules in Financial Decision Making, New Directions in Economics, Econometrics, Financial Markets and Institutions and Behavioural Economics.
Develop transferable skills that are valued by professionals and industry experts, including well-evidenced empirical analysis and the ability to communicate economic ideas in reports and public audits. 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. Recent successes include Deutsche Bank, KPMG, PwC, Mattioli Woods and GSK.
Develop proficiency in the core disciplines of macroeconomics and microeconomics, supported by a strong competency in analytical skills and manipulation of numerical 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, such as NBC Universal and IBM.
Enjoy an international experience with DMU Global – on these trips you will visit sites like The Hong Kong Monetary Authority where you will see how financial stability is maintained and the associated benefits for Hong Kong as a financial centre.
