Economics - the supply of goods and services with scarce resources.

Economic issues concern organisation of work, new accountancy standards, developing countries, international financial markets and business tax, and Economics and Management deals with all of these. It is, in short, the science of scarcity. Not everything that is desirable is affordable and, conversely, not everything that is affordable is desirable. As a result, wise decisions are required. And the sophisticated methods in Economics and Management help people to make wise decisions privately, in business and in politics.

Managers and politicians are faced with new economic challenges every day. The School of Economics and Management makes important contributions to overcoming these challenges through research and teaching. It advises companies, organisations and governments, and provides its students with in-depth academic training. Graduates of the School are versatile problem-solvers who understand their trade.
