The Economics programme from the University of Greenwich aims to meet the opportunity in the market for employment by international organisations of graduates with sophisticated understanding and application of economic theory to international contexts, business, markets and institutions.



Students studying in Economics develop a wide range of practical skills in investigation, information management and presentation. Employers value such transferable skills for their use in analysis, decision-making and communication.

You will receive a rigorous grounding in economic theory, solid training in quantitative subjects and the opportunity to study in depth a number of problems and issues which have a crucial impact on society: unemployment and inflation; poverty and inequality; international trade and globalisation; the causes and consequences of economic growth; and the role and function of business at the local, national and international level.

The programme aims to meet the opportunity in the market for employment by international organisations of graduates with sophisticated understanding and application of economic theory to international contexts, business, markets and institutions. Direct entry to Year 2 or 3 is available for qualified applicants. Students on this programme may apply to participate in overseas exchanges with our Erasmus partners. We are proud to say that we are 1st for student course satisfaction in London for Economics, according to both the Guardian and the Complete University Guide 2016 league tables.The aims of the programme are:
