Masterclass: What is Economics?

University event offered by Birmingham City University

Event Summary:

Key stage 4 and 5 students are given direct access to academic expertise at our campus. Staff will help students to develop a deeper understanding of current issues within their chosen subject area.

Full Event Details:

Are your students curious about the big challenges facing our economies – inequality, technological innovation, climate change? Are they considering a career as an analysts in the public sector, industry, or non-governmental organisations? Are they keen to develop strong numerical, communication, and critical thinking skills? This interactive masterclass will introduce students to the study of economics, what economists do, and how the tools of economic analysis can be applied to understand real world issues. Delivered by academics with a wealth of research and industry experience, they will find out about our economics degrees and the careers they can lead to. Whilst very favourable for all types of students, this masterclass will be of particular interest to women, who tend to secure higher earnings positions with an economics degree in comparison to other subjects.
