Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate

This program is a versatile and relevant business and professional qualification. The world's economies, living standards, commercial and political systems are all at the heart of economics. This degree looks at how modern economies operate - how they trade and grow, the role of prices, supply and demand, and how business and government both affect and are affected by the economy. Students develop analytical skills of both quantitative and policy-based economic issues - practical skills and knowledge that can be then adapted to a range of careers. Social responsibility, ethical decision making, and environmental and business sustainability are incorporated throughout this degree, and students will develop skills to use, critically analyse, interpret, construct and communicate economic and social data with an emphasis on economic decision making.
