    Course Summary

    Brikbeck, University of London’s BSc degree in Economics and Business is a great choice for students who have a keen interest in both the way money and resources move through different markets on a local, national and international scale (Economics) and the ambition to lead others in a professional context (Business and Management).

    You’ll learn precisely the skills employers demand, including the ability to analyse problems in a deep and meaningful level whilst being able to restate the problem clearly and to give actionable solutions and strategy suggestions to resolve it. 

    The degree program is delivered by the Department of Economics, Mathematics and Statistics, which features a teaching staff who were awarded Silver status in the most recent Teaching Excellence Framework. Many of your course tutors will also be active researchers in their fields. In fact, more than half of Brikbeck’s Economic research output has been assessed as either world leading or internationally excellent.

Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
