Economics is a diverse subject that will expose you to a wide range of opportunities and careers. We will teach you to be independent thinkers and some of our graduates have gone on to launch their own businesses or work as NGOs or with the UN in developing countries.
Our careers officer will work with you continuously to make sure you have the right skills to succeed in the competitive job market, and you’ll have access to events covering CV writing, interview preparation and summer internships, where you spend two to three weeks working on a project in industry.
A BSc economics degree means you are provided with the skills required for a very wide range of careers. These skills are useful in the financial sector, general commerce, public sector, 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 on our BSc economics course.
