    so i am applying for the Bsc in economic history as development economics interests me and economic history has a lot of content on this. however i know the degree is not as quantitative as say straight econ bsc. however it is still a BSc.. does anyone who is doing an econ history degree or has a friend who has done it possibly tell me what sector they're mostly employed..?

    many thanks

    Econ History grads have jobs in IB and Consulting. No problem. Go to Econ History page in LSE and check out Grad destinations. In my opinion, Econ History may be better preparation than straight Econs for jobs other than as an Economist. Go for it if you like the subject because you will do well in it. Top employers don't necessarily employ only Econ grads, far from it.

    I'm doing Bsc Econ History here and the job prospects are pretty much the same as people doing straight economics. A lot of people who I've met at networking events here have done the degree and are working in investment banking and other lucrative financial streams. As long as you get in you stand a good chance of getting into that type of area as well as others.
