  • Course outline
  • Expand / Collapse

This course provides a balanced blend of basic mathematical techniques, a rigorous examination of their validity, the development of underlying structures common to a number of concepts and the application of mathematics to solve complex problems that arise in the real world. We reflect the awareness of the excitingly complex patterns and systems that can arise from simple mathematical ideas.

You will gain a solid grounding in economics, providing a theoretical and conceptual outlook in the world of business. Many employers regard economics graduates as highly sought-after members of a business team.
