Brunel University London

Course Introduction

This programme allows you to study the fundamental analytical techniques of micro and macroeconomics, while also developing knowledge and understanding of the core concepts and issues in corporate policy, finance and investment. Initial emphasis is on both theory and practical applications. In your final year you have the option to choose between more specialist modules in economics or finance.

This course will equip you with the core theoretical and practical skills necessary to understand and analyse economic and corporate financing and investment decisions in the business world. It prepares you for a range of careers including management consultancy, business analysis and economic forecasting. Your studies will include a module on econometrics to help you to develop the data modelling skills using computer programmes – a skill highly valued by finance and investment employers. If you decide to study professional accountancy after you graduate, our degrees offer some exemptions to ACCA and CIMA papers. As part of your studies, you also get training and access to industry analytical tools including SAS, Eviews, Bloomberg, Reuters and STATA. Economics at Brunel is ranked 63rd in UK and 8th in London (The Complete University Guide, 2019).
