Economics vs business studies Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I want to do either accounting/economics or finance at uni
    I'm already doing Maths and geography so I don't want burden myself too much so which one is easier and which will be more beneficial for me in the future and how hard is it to get A in each 1

    Economics is more well-respected and would definitely fit with your degree subject better.
    Business is easier but probably not by too much. Economics will be fine as long as you can write an evaluative essay! The concepts can be a little difficult at first but as you go through the course your understanding of one aids another so they all start to click.

    I was going to write exactly what ions said. I woud choose economics, but if you feel like you are going to struggle with maths/geography business would lighten the burden.
