Why Study BA (Hons) Business Economics?

An Economics degree encompasses a lot of how society works; how groups of us live, move, invest and spend and being able to track that is a valuable skill. Not only is it transferable to other job sectors; marketing, social media, finance and politics but a degree like this is highly respected among these jobs too.

Business Economics is a more defined application of general economic theory, and while these are taught you will learn how to track patterns in order to understand and even profit the businesses you work for; which is an incredibly lucrative skill to have.
