Economic Studies

A Bachelor's degree is a degree awarded by universities and colleges. In order to earn a bachelor's degree, you must complete the necessary courses that may last three to seven years depending on your institution of enrollment.

Economics and administration is a discipline that focuses on both macro and micro economics. Experts are trained to understand both how individual actions and mass trends affect the economy. Many specialize in particular subject areas such as public policy, business economics and consumer behavior.

 

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.
