Bachelor of Science (Hons) Economic with Banking, UOG
Acquiring Bachelor of Science in Economics with Banking
Economics is concerned with some of the most important issues which affect us all – employment, income, prices, housing, poverty, the distribution of income and wealth, the environment and pollution, leisure, government spending on services such as health, education and transport, competitiveness, investment, productivity and growth, international trade and finance. There are only a few aspects of our lives that cannot be analysed from an economic perspective, evaluating and comparing the costs and benefits of alternative courses of action.
We aspire to groom you with sophisticated understanding and application of economic theory in international contexts, business, markets and institutions. Our programme is unique. Being internationally attuned, its evidence-based approach prepares you to become competent, confident and ready to start a career at an international level.
You get a rigorous grounding in economic theory, solid training in quantitative subjects and are offered to gain specific knowledge of behaviour and practices of banks, other financial intermediaries and the place of the financial system in the economy and to become aware of the effects of the rise of international finance on the financial system’s stability and the issues of financial regulation.
We frequently revise this programme to reflect current business priorities and demands of employers to ensure that you are trained in relevant issues and business applications.
With this programme, you can aspire to achieve various entry-level jobs in banking, finance, insurance, stock markets, sales and marketing as well as corporations including consulting firms or government departments.
You may also kick-start your career with government enterprises, public undertakings, investment firms, education, advertising, commercial management and research, business journals and newspapers.
