O melhor curso na melhor universidade para você

The ever-changing global economy makes headlines on a daily basis, shaping the world in which we live socially, politically and economically. Consequently, there is a strong demand in businesses throughout the world for economics experts who can interpret real world economic events and issues. We have a strong focus on graduate employability, with employment skills embedded in our Economistâ??s Toolkit modules alongside research methods and analytical skills. Our Business Futures team, based in the Coventry Business School, will also be on hand to offer you help and guidance in securing work placements or internships, as well as preparing you to apply for graduate roles. This course, one of three pathways offered in the field of economics, can help your ability to apply economic principles and models to a wide range of issues, while also developing your understanding of the larger driving forces shaping economic policy. Upon successful completion of your first year, which has the same modules as our Business Economics BSc and Financial Economics BSc, you will have the opportunity to switch to one of those courses, giving you the flexibility to work out what area of economics interests you before deciding to focus on it (for international students, course changes are subject to Tier 4 compliance approval). If you choose to study Economics BSc in your second and third years, you will have the opportunity to select optional modules that can help you to tailor your degree to your own career aspirations or areas of interest. Optional modules offered cover topics as wide-ranging as behavioural economics, development economics and environmental economics. A major strength of our course is its practical focus; youâ??ll have opportunities to participate in skills development workshops, as well as having the chance to gain exposure to relevant software through hands-on experience. This experience aims to ensure you are familiar with analytical programmes that economists use in practice, from quantitative software such as Oxmetrics or GRETL to economic and financial databases, such as World Economic Indicators, Eurostat and Thomson Reuters Eikon. You will also have the opportunity to apply for a Placement Year, in your third year, which in the past has seen students working for a wide range of organisations and companies, including PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), Barclays and the Bank of England, or studying at partner institutions, in places such as China and the United States.
