    Course Summary

    A BSc in Business Economics from Ulster University is an excellent path for students who want to learn the theoretical side of economics as well as gain a practical understanding of how business really use the discipline. Unlike most Economics course, it is highly employment focused, and will convey a wide range of professional skills as well as the information you’ll need to succeed in nearly nay business role. Alternatively, there are many post-graduate programs in business or economics which make perfect next steps as well.

    By the time you graduate, you’ll have developed a firm picture of the global economy, and the place Northern Ireland occupies in it. You’ll learn not just abstract economic theory, but all about the practical economic frameworks within which all modern businesses operate. You’ll go beyond that, to study the tactics and techniques business entities use to maximise their profitability, sustainability and overall competitiveness in modern (post economic collapse) markets.

    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.
