Economics courses

Graduates of our economics courses have gone on to careers at the Bank of England, Lloyds Banking Group, Barclays Capital, PriceWaterhouseCoopers and Oxford Economics. Taught at Sheffield Business School, these programmes introduce you to the latest economic thinking using real-world issues, quantitative data, statistical packages and econometric software.

You'll study macroeconomics to an advanced level, and get a thorough grounding in microeconomics, econometrics and statistics. Elective modules include financial markets, management, behavioural economics and foreign languages.

With a strong vocational focus – including a third-year work placement and a final-year consultancy project – you'll gain transferable skills and valuable work experience alongside your degree.
