Course Summary:
In today's globalised world, the need to understand economic principles and how they affect business is more important than ever before. We'll give you the chance to gain a valuable grounding in economics with an additional focus on financial services to help make you attractive to employers in your chosen field. This could lead to an exciting career in all manner of industries, in the private or public sector. Economics looks at how people and organisations utilise the resources they have to meet their needs. You can look at economics at a national level, or from the perspective of a household or even a single person. Businesses are always looking for people who understand the theory behind the practice. Social problems like poverty and inequality, high unemployment and rising pollution can all be tackled through a knowledge of economics. On the course you'll look at macroeconomics, which gives you the chance to explore how high level factors such as income, inflation and consumption affect each other and also, microeconomics which looks at how individual businesses and even households behave and how to develop models to analyse them.You'll also have the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of both retail and investment banking, how the bond and stock markets work, and the regulatory practices that have an impact on the financial system.Policy practice is also explored to keep pace with fast moving and ever changing business environments. You'll also have the chance to gain training that economists use to analyse policies and inform research including statistics, quantitative methods and econometrics. We don't expect you to be fully versed in economics before your course begins, as we aim to develop your understanding from first principles. We'll also be looking at how mathematic tools can be used to analyse economic decisions. So any mathematics is very much applied rather than pure.

Huddersfield was a challenging and fun experience for me. The lecturers really inspired me to think creatively and forced me to consider new perspectives. The city life is ok, there’s not tonnes of clubbing but you can always hop on the train to Leeds or Manchester for a mad one. I prefer to hang out in the pub after lectures, anyway. There are loads of great facilities here too, the library is particularly amazing. The careers service is also incredibly helpful, I walked straight into a job after graduation!

    This is a great university. There is a lot of facilities, including the library, cafes/shops and a gym. The town is really easy to get around and everything is close together.
