About BSc Economics and Finance
Recognising the importance of statistical analysis in its two core disciplines, our Economics and Finance degree includes compulsory units in econometrics. This is the application of statistical and mathematical techniques to verify or disprove theories and predict economic events.
You will take at least one econometrics unit in years one and two, and two units in your final year.
By co-ordinating teaching across the School of Economics, Finance and Management, we are able to offer you a genuinely integrated degree in Economics and Finance so that you can study both disciplines in depth.
