Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Economics graduates normally do well in the jobs market, but as the finance industry has struggled, it's made for more difficult conditions for new graduates. As the industry recovers, we expect the statistics to improve. As so many economic grads go into banking and finance, it's not surprising that nearly half of all 2012's economics graduates who did go into work were working in London. It's quite common for economics graduates to go into jobs such as accountancy which require you to take more training and gain professional qualifications - so don’t assume you won’t have to take any more exams once you leave uni. The incentive to take them, of course, is better pay, which will be on top of an already healthy average starting salary of over £28,000 for graduates working in the capital.
