Program Description

Overview

From the price of milk to Britain’s much-debated membership of the European Union, few academic disciplines have as big an impact on our everyday lives as Economics. This course will shine a light on the theoretical side of this complex and often misunderstood subject, considering real-life applications in conjunction with the more practical disciplines of Finance and Accounting. Whether you want to improve your general knowledge or you’re considering a career in a related field, the course is a fascinating introduction to the subject.

Academic Content

On this course, you’ll look at key economic theory and how it is applied to a range of topics within microeconomics, macroeconomics and international economics. Covering models such as market structure, international trade, and exchange rates you’ll consider basic economic problems such as scarcity and choice and supply and demand. You’ll additionally consider current economic issues such as unemployment and the pros and cons of EU membership, approaching them from an intellectual perspective and engaging in debate with your fellow students.

With your new knowledge of economics in mind, you will then delve into the more practical disciplines of finance and accounting, considering the differences between the two and exploring the multiple career choices available within each.
