Student experience Business School

Our economics teaching ranked first in London for student satisfaction in the Complete University Guide 2017 league tables.

How we teach students

We offer our students a wide range of support to facilitate their active learning, including online access to electronic journal and database (ORBIS, Thomson One, Datastream, FDI Markets) and extensive computer facilities. Tutorials are highly interactive and many are held in computer laboratories to allow a "hands-on" approach and direct access to online resources.

Given our focus on data-handling skills students are strongly encouraged to acquire the free Reuter Certification offered by Thomsons-Reuters to Reuters Datastream practitioners, just by following a simple test. The certification is beneficial in assisting students in their final year project and in enhancing their employment opportunities. Students with interest in trading careers have the opportunity to be trained in using OANDA trading platforms and to interpret various market signals.

Developing skills

Our students develop a wide range of analytical and practical skills in investigation, information management and presentation. Employers value such transferable skills for their use in analysis, decision-making and communication.

In addition to these sought after skills, the programme seeks to prepare students for rounded professional life and supports them in developing social contacts and social skills crucial to life and career success.

Economics is much more than number crunching; it is the foundation for many aspects of all our lives, from personal income to international trade. Study economics and gain valuable skills, analytical thinking, problem solving, communication, all highly praised by employers.

Students could end up as a professional economist, market analyst, stockbroker, banker or policy advisor. This programme will give students the knowledge and practical skills to meet the demand of both national and international employers.

More and more businesses are going global. New markets are evolving. There is a big demand for graduates to work in international roles.

Learn how to approach business with a global outlook, assess new markets, evaluate if cultural differences affect business operations and how. Students can study a language or attend work placements abroad. This will relate everything learnt in the real world of international business. Our programmes will give students the skills to succeed in their chosen field.

"The best part about studying economics at Greenwich is how the programme is taught here. The professors are very helpful, they basically guide you through every single detail and they remind you what you have to do and it's just the way they teach is very, they are very passionate about teaching, to me it seems like it and I just love how the lecturers are taught here."
