What degree from the two mentioned in the question would be better to study? This by taking into account all aspects say future employability, number of different career paths, possibility of going into journalism, getting exemptions from Chartered Accountancy exams, becoming an entrepreneur, doing further studies and research etc

An economics degree is much more respected. A lot of jobs in finance doesn't even requiere an accounting and finance degree.

Thank you for your reply. I have a feeling that you are right but I do not understand why because when one dies accounting and finance the course work does include a lot material about micro and macroeconomics...

There are many online courses one can do to learn that. For free. Like edX. Also from books. I know people from Bristol university who strongly advice doing economics instead of A&C.
