Course summary

Fascinated by what makes the financial world tick? Want to make your mark in business and investment?

It’s designed around the research of our teaching experts and backed by excellent industry links.During the course, you’ll dig deep into modern economics and how it influences the financial systems and organisations around us. And you’ll develop your understanding of microeconomics, macroeconomics, corporate governance and corporate social responsibility.Your main base is the Newcastle Business School. But in your third year, you’ll have the chance to venture further afield with an optional industry placement, applying your knowledge and securing critical experience in the real world.It’s not just about developing skills, but also boosting employability once you leave us. In recent years, our students have spent their placement working with some of the biggest names in the business – including the Bank of England and Bloomberg LP. Many have then gone on to secure full-time graduate positions with their placement year employer.
