"The ideas of economists and political philosophers, both when they are right and when they are wrong, are more powerful than is commonly understood. Indeed, the world is ruled by little else."
- John Maynard Keynes
Our ambition is for all of our students to think like economists and business leaders, confidently describing how the world works and becoming better decision makers, to enrich their lives. They will read to gain insight into the very best thinking by world renowned academics and entrepreneurs. They will express themselves clearly and purposefully using sophisticated language and numerical data.
Our economics and business curriculum has been designed to enable our learners to:
- Appreciate the contribution of economics and business to the understanding of the wider economic and social environment
- Use an enquiring, critical and thoughtful approach to the study of economics and business and develop an ability to think as an economist
- Understand that economic and business behaviour can be studied from a range of perspectives
- Develop analytical and quantitative skills, together with qualities and attitudes which will equip them for the challenges, opportunities and responsibilities of adult and working life.
