Course Introduction

**Why choose this course?**

This course offers more than just mainstream economics. You will study both traditional and alternative approaches to economics, including controversial theories informed by the financial crisis of 2008. This will help you develop a better understanding of the real world and a more critical approach to economics. The Business Economics BSc(Hons) has a specific focus on studying issues that affect large and small businesses across the globe.

Throughout your degree you will develop core skills valued by employers. For example, the Working as an Economist module develops your researching, writing and presenting skills. Economics graduates work in a wide variety of sectors, including business, finance, marketing, media, science, engineering, healthcare and teaching.

Business Economics achieved 100% overall satisfaction from final year students in the 2017 annual National Student Survey (NSS), which asks for feedback on courses.
