Economics courses

Economics is a broad subject which looks at how decisions are made by people and organisations, and how these decisions impact the world around us. The creation and distribution of money and wealth is a key area of economics, but it also covers a much wider range of decisions/factors that people and businesses take into account everyday. Economics also helps us understand how money and wealth are linked to politics, law, and geography. This feeds into our three main degrees – Economics, Financial Economics, and Business Economics with Marketing.
