A degree in Economics provides the skills required for a very wide range of careers. These skills are useful in the financial sector, general commerce and industry, public service, journalism and education, to name but a few.
Many employers will value the training that an Economics degree provides.
The University of Birmingham is known to produce high quality graduates. Therefore students are in high demand when they have completed their study.
The University offers advice through the Careers Centre. They have specialists who can advise students from the Department of Economics on what the possibilities are on graduating. Joining one of the Department's student societies is also a good way of finding out about future careers. Local firms often sponsor events for our students (such as business games, seminars on interview techniques and how to write a CV, and, of course, more social events) so that they can get to know you and also get you to know about them. It is a further indication of the attractiveness of our students.
