The Diploma in Economics is aimed at those without a background in the subject, and provides training in the core components of modern economic analysis and appropriate quantitative methods. You will acquire the ability to analyse economic problems, both empirically and theoretically, developing your knowledge of economic trends, institutions and policy.
The Diploma 1+1 variant is ideal for you if your academic background is outside Economics but you want the option to proceed to MSc level in the discipline. You will need to complete nine months of coursework and summer exams to the required standard to advance to an Economics MSc degree in your second year.
On completing the course, you’ll be well placed to pursue a career in the finance sector, within accountancy, banking and insurance, or in areas such as business intelligence, and social/market research.
