Our courses


Economics at Kingston

Studying economics will challenge your intellect and develop your problem-solving and analytical skills. You'll gain skills in data analysis, using industry standard IT facilities and well-rounded, independent, and critical thinking skills, that are highly valued by employers.

You can choose to study financial economics which explores how the economy and the financial system are connected. Or you may choose to study business economics which focuses on the real-life application of the subject.

You'll have the option to study abroad at one of our partner universities.
