An understanding of Economics is becoming increasingly important in a wide range of careers

Economics is:

  • Essential to business students achieving a 'well-rounded' education
  • A base discipline from which each of the functional areas of business (such as Finance, Marketing, Accounting or Operations Management) has derived some of its principles and ideas
  • An excellent complement to courses such as Law, Political Studies, Philosophy, History, Geography, Languages, Psychology, Ecology, Environmental Management, Energy Management, Mathematics and Statistics
  • An excellent complement to any degree. Try a few papers, or a minor in Economics - even if you don't have room for a full major in Economics
