Do employers care what type of degree you do + league tables

    Do employers care if you do a basic economics or a ba. Is one better than the other. Will doing ba mean I am less likely to get a job and has anyone done it. Also how important are league tables when applying for jobs

    BA means Bachelor of Arts, BSc means Bachelor of Science.

    The BSc has more maths and statistics but the BA is still very theoretical.

    It really depends on the university you're applying to though, call them and ask them what their differences are if they offer both.

    This explains it fairly well:

    Thank you so much that was really helpful. I'm probably going to take economics history and English and drop maths

    Would this be a good option seeing as they are linear
