Program description

Economics BSc (Full-time)

Why study this course?

Explore debates on economic growth, sustainability, banking and financial crises, and prepare for your career with a work placement. You'll learn from international economists, recognised for their research, and staff who are expert advisers to major financial institutions.

The Guardian has ranked London Met's economics courses second in London in its university league tables 2020.

Exploring current thinking on world economic growth, the course examines the development and sustainability of the international economy. This includes the world of finance, as well as patterns of international trade and global inequality. The course also covers everyday economics issues such as work and profit, income and saving, congestion, unemployment, inflation and exchange rates.

You'll have the opportunity to undertake a work placement as a credited part of your course and to study in other European countries or the US.

Many of our staff have worked as advisers to organisations such as the European Commission, the UK Treasury, the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) and the UK and Italian governments.
