What about "Economics & International Economics"? Like the course Nottingham offers: https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/ugstudy...c#yearsmodules .. But tbh, if you want to go into a career in business, then maybe BSc Econ would be your best bet - you can just take international economics modules?

Interesting that you think an economics degree is really respected and particularly useful in the business world. In reality, whilst you pick up some useful skills like statistics, not a massive amount is applicable to jobs beyond being an economist, academic or a few finance positions. I'm not sure employers would care massively about whether it was a BSc Economics or a BSc Economics and international economics.

It's also a tad early for you to be deciding that a specific bit of Econ interests you, normally people start to specialise more at masters level. You have to remember that Economics is very different at university compared to a-level so you might find that there's other parts that interest you more at university level, after all you can take international trade, international macro and international development optional modules in a BSc Economics, often in 2nd and 3rd year depending on the universities you're looking at.
