Teaching in UEA's School of Economics is informed by cutting edge research and practice; members of academic staff advise the European Commission, the Office of Fair Trading and other institutions, and their day-to-day experience in the running of competition policy gives a practical angle to the academic rigour of their teaching.
This degree will allow you to develop skills highly desired by employers, including analytical and business awareness skills in an international context. The programme should appeal to those who wish to pursue a career in the areas of finance, management or international business.
