Learn to ride the financial rollercoaster with an Economics degree

This is an exciting time to be an economics student, as the free market economy has handed out some extreme real-life scenarios over recent years - with the global financial crisis and subsequent collapse of more than one country's economy.

As an economics student you get to submerge yourself in this complex world, exploring the causes and effects of major corporate actions or government decisions on the living breathing entities we call the financial markets.

Delve into the analysis of real world scenarios

Gain a solid grounding in fundamental economic analysis during your first year. Then specialise, choosing from a wide range of units including:

  • Human resource economics,
  • Economics of Global Climate Change,
  • International Financial Markets and Institutions,
  • Chinese Economy,
  • Changing Economies of Asia,
  • Econometrics.
