Economics is concerned with some of the most important issues which affect us all – employment, income, prices, housing, poverty, the distribution of income and wealth, the environment and pollution, leisure, government spending on services such as health, education and transport, competitiveness, investment, productivity and growth, international trade and finance. There are very few aspects of our lives that cannot be analysed from an economic perspective, evaluating and comparing the costs and benefits of alternative courses of action.
This programme is geared to meet the opportunity in the market for employment by international organisations of graduates with sophisticated understanding and application of economic theory to international contexts, business, markets and institutions. This programme is distinctive for being internationally attuned, for its strong applied evidence-based approach and for preparing students to become competent, confident and readily employable at an international level.
Students studying this programme receive a rigorous grounding in economic theory, solid training in quantitative subjects and are offered to gain specific knowledge of behaviour and practices of banks, other financial intermediaries and the place of the financial system in the economy and to become aware of the effects of the rise of international finance on the financial system’s stability and the issues of financial regulation.
The programme is frequently revised to reflect current business priorities and demands of employers to ensure that students are trained in relevant issues and business applications.
