Economics is built on some simple, yet important, idea known as threshold concepts. These apply to decisions taken every day by individuals, firms and governments. Some of these decisions can have very important effects for all of us.
This course provides a solid grounding in the threshold concepts underpinning economic analysis, using its distinctive perspectives to critically analyse business decision-masking. You will learn about the industry and regulatory contexts surrounding decisions in an international setting as well as develop crucial employment skills.
This flexible course provides a solid grounding in the main elements of economic analysis, while emphasising their application to public and private organisations, as well as to question policy.
As an Economics student you'll have access to our unique Trading Room facility.
