I am applying for University for next year and was wondering whether or not it would be smart to take Economics with one other discipline such as:
- Economics and Politics
- Economics and Management
- Economics and Finance
- Economics and Accounting, etc.
...Or Economics on its own.
1) Which one gives me more Employability?
2) Which one gives me a decent career for Monetary Interest?
3) Which is more enjoyable or 'dull' and boring?
Thank you for your time and response!E

The only subject worth combining Economics with in terms of broadening long term prospects is Mathematics (or Mathematical Statistics). This would be the ideal route to preparing for higher academic study in Economics - such as a PhD. However unless you're exceptionally strong in mathematics and in particular interested in formally proving general solutions to the types of problem you can and do find specific solutions for on a day-to-day basis now (presuming you're taking A-level Maths) then it will probably backfire.
For anything else, it's as good or bad as any other arbitrary subject or combination. The only things where Economics (on it's own or in combination) is specifically a necessary background are things that normally require a PhD to pursue anyway. Beyond that the only thing that matters is the name of the university you attend, particularly for the roles you're...interested, in.Last edited by artful_lounger; 2 weeks ago at 11:43.
