Economics graduate prospectsWatch
What could u actually do with an economics degree? Like not just "work in finance" but what actual physical job?!
Well 'finance' consists of:
Advising companies on buying/selling other companies, helping companies raise capital to grow or expand into new areas, crafting derivative/debt products to counter any risk a company is facing);
Buying/selling financial products - bonds, shares, currencies, commodities - either on behalf of clients, or using proprietary capital - in the financial markets
Allocating money (raised from institutional investors like pension funds or wealthy individuals), to a variety of financial products using varying strategies in order to create a return on those investments. Within this field, you have different asset classes: traditional mutual fund investing and 'alternatives' (otherwise known as Private Equity and Hedge Funds).
A division within a larger corporation dealing with the financial planning, strategy and forecasting of the business. They sometimes have internal 'private equity' arms, that buyout companies.
Economic Development at an NGO, a professional Economist at a bank or at the Bank of England, a Management trainee, Marketing, PR, Sales, Recruitment, Supply Chain, even a Software Engineer if you develop your skills outside of uni - the list goes on.
Most of these jobs, bar the first two, are available to all grads. Hell, even most finance jobs are available to all grads.
