Program description

There has never been a more exciting time to study economics. The ongoing consequences of the last economic crisis mean that the world urgently needs new thinking and new processes to meet the challenges of a changing economic climate. As an economics student, you will explore issues of economic stability, growth and development, all vital for economic forecasting and for influencing economic performance and policy. You will also examine the causes of economic growth and the policies that are designed to promote prosperity, increase efficiency and reduce unwanted fluctuation in fiscal activity. There is a distinguished history of economics in Scotland that includes the work of David Hume and Adam Smith. Throughout your studies, you will learn from world-leading economists before following in the footsteps of our graduates who are in demand by national and international organisations. Statistical techniques act as an important tool if you're interested in economic theory (e.g. risk management and finance) or applied economic analysis (econometrics). This joint programme complements the basic grounding in and applications of statistical techniques which is provided within the economics programme, with a more thorough and rigorous development of statistical principles. This programme will provide you with an excellent background for the pursuit of relatively technical careers in areas such as finance and insurance (including actuarial work), or if you would like to proceed on to graduate study of economics.
