Course Introduction

This degree will give you a solid grounding in economic theory from a pluralistic perspective, as well as training in quantitative subjects. You will also have the opportunity to gain subject-specific knowledge of the behaviour and practice of banks, international regulation and finance, and the place of financial systems in microeconomics.

Our academics adopt a real-world approach to the teaching of economics to prepare you for your career. You will gain a sound knowledge of microeconomics, macroeconomics, economic history, quantitative methods, banking and finance, and investment. In addition, you can choose from a variety of diverse options, ranging from labour economics to the theory and practice of trading.

You can also train to use OANDA trading platforms and online journals and databases, including ORBIS, Thomson One, Datastream and FDI Markets.

Graduates in economics with banking can pursue a range of entry-level jobs in banking, finance, insurance, stock markets, sales and marketing. You may begin your career with government enterprises, public undertakings, investment firms, commercial management or research.
