Why study BA Economics at Middlesex University?
Our dynamic degree introduces the core concepts, practices and techniques of economics and considers how they have evolved over time. Economics study is primarily concerned with the production and consumption of goods, and how wealth is created, lost and transferred globally.
Through stimulating theory and debate you will explore the key factors that influence economic forces, such as wealth and income creation and the nature of our most precious resources; how they are allocated, distributed and used. This degree can lead to a wide range of careers across the finance, economics and policy sectors.
Work placements are an invaluable opportunity to gain employability skills so we have introduced two options by which you can integrate into your time at Middlesex.
