Overview

The knowledge of the economist and the skill of the linguist make a powerful combination in the modern world. With increasingly globalised and interdependent commercial markets, graduates that can apply their skills and understanding overseas have never been more sought after, opening up exciting new horizons for a successful international career.

To study Economics you need to understand how economists think about problems, and that means studying theoretical models. But we also understand the importance of applying those theories to the problems that economists face, so this programme (and all other Economics-based programmes) also emphasises applied Economics, aiming to help you develop skills in statistics that you can use to analyse economic data and forecast what may happen in the future.
