This programme's focus is particularly suitable to academic scholarship. So a natural progression for our graduates will be towards further study – both at Masters level before seeking employment, and into doctoral programmes.
Graduates will be well placed to enter the Government Economic Service, the UK's principal employer of economists. They will also be qualified for positions in economic consultancies or trade and representative bodies such as the CBI, as well as in industry and commerce.
However, most graduates are likely to gain employment in positions where their acquired knowledge is valuable, rather than essential. So all sectors of the economy are potentially available (including self employment).
Examples of firms which have taken on our graduates recently are Hull Trains, RWE, Npower, IBM, Young’s Seafood, BAE Systems, Deutsche Börse Group and Airbus. Others have joined local authorities or have gone on to train as teachers.
Our dedicated Centre for Professional Success will connect you with businesses and keep you up to date with relevant work placements, company projects and job opportunities and skills to help give you the edge in the employment market.
