International economics focuses on the trade, financial and development issues facing different economies and their institutional frameworks. This course is designed for those students who have an interest in different economies and the relationships between them. It is designed to open up a wide range of careers in companies operating globally or for policy makers such as the World Bank. Why countries specialise in certain goods and services for comparative advantage over other countries and how this changes over time, how global financial markets affect national economic policies, and how emerging and developing countries grow – these are all important questions that policy makers around the world are tackling today. This course covers the essential core modules in economics and also offers a distinct international flavour. Optional modules give you the opportunity to specialise in areas that are of interest to you and your career aspirations.
