Economics at DMU is ranked 1st in the UK for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey, 2015. The Department of Economics will help you to develop your proficiency in a wide variety of disciplines within Economics. We recognise the broad range of knowledge that employers require from graduates; consequently our modules reflect economics in a global context in a variety of areas including, the micro and macroeconomic environment, global financial markets, international trade and organisation strategy and politics. The skills you will develop are highly valued by employers and can be used in a variety of different industries. These skills include critical thinking, analytical ability, research skills and presentation skills. You will also have access to the same information as leading decision makers in finance, business and government through professional Bloomberg software, bringing the real world of economics into the classroom.

Amarjit Bains, Business Management and Economics BA (Hons)

Placement: Pfizer, Industrial Trainee (Pfizer Consulting & Execution)

Business Management & Economics is the perfect course and one that I would recommend to all individuals, regardless of their current discipline. The equal blend of business and economics met my needs and I can truly say that the course has exceeded my expectations. The lectures have introduced to me new topics and methodologies, but also explored new avenues in each field of study rather than focusing solely on traditional teachings. I would wholly recommend choosing a course, like mine, that contains the opportunity to undertake a placement year, as this provides students with real experience distinguishing them among thousands of other graduates.”

Wills Lewis, Economics and Finance BSc (Hons)

Placement: IBM, Financial Analyst (Global Technology Services)

“The lecturers have come from industry and have a great perspective on how things are changing. The course is really current and there’s a great mix between theory and application to today’s world. Plus on the financial side we can get exemptions from CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants).”
