About Economics at City, University of London

Who is it for?

This course is for students who want to explore current economic theory and the sheer scope of its relevance and application in today’s world. With a focus on the practical link between theory and real-world application, this degree will help you to understand economics in theory and practice and learn the mathematics and statistics that underpin economics. You will also develop the quantitative and analytical skills to evaluate the economic dimension of wider social and political issues, such as the impact of immigration on natives, the organisation of healthcare systems, the negotiation of free-trade agreements or financial regulation.

This flexible degree has been designed for students who are interested in a broad range of future careers and postgraduate study options in the areas of economics, business and finance. Studying with experts in the field, in a dynamic, supportive environment, you will develop highly transferable skills that will be of value in postgraduate study, employment and self-employment.

Objectives

This stimulating degree enables you to study core economic principles and issues. You will develop a broad understanding of the subject – from microeconomic issues of decision and choice and the production and exchange of goods, through to the interdependency of markets and economic welfare. You will also explore macroeconomic issues, such as employment, national income, the balance of payments and distribution of income, inflation, growth and business cycles, money and finance.

This stimulating degree will introduce you to the broad scope of economics, exploring key questions such as: how do its theories apply to the production, distribution, and consumption of services and goods, such as food and fuel? What are the economic aspects of social and political issues?

With a focus on real-world application, this flexible degree, will prepare you for a range of career and post-graduate opportunities. You will develop highly transferable skills much favoured by today’s employers, such as problem solving, a deep understanding of economic ideas and theory, and their real-world application. Our graduates are in high demand, with alumni from our programmes currently working at organisations such as KPMG, Bloomberg, PwC, Deloitte, HM Treasury, Ernst & Young, the Department for Transport and Goldman Sachs.

To help you fulfil your future ambitions and stand out from the crowd, you will have the opportunity to broaden your horizons with our European exchange and placement year schemes and by participating in our student-led Economics Society.
