    Course Summary

    The BSc in Economics from Bournemouth University is delivered by their AACSB accredited Business School. Less than 55 of the world’s Business Schools can make that claim. Employers know that this speaks volumes about the quality of your education.

    You’ll learn about the world’s many different economic systems, come to understand the basics of finance and learn analysis techniques such as econometrics and statistics. In time you’ll be able to select your own area of special expertise by choosing elective modules. This might include micro- or macro-economics, particular econometric techniques or a focus on one or more industries or regions.

    You’ll have the opportunity to spend 30-48 weeks in work placement as well. This will be arranged through the university, and could see you getting advanced training and experience in business economics nearly anywhere in the UK or abroad. This is something employers really appreciate, and puts you in a very competitive position.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. 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.
