Course description

Economic issues are central to the understanding of the real world. This course will allow you to develop an understanding of economic concepts and theories through a critical consideration of current economic issues, problems and institutions.

Future opportunities

You could take this course to complement other advanced level courses or to prepare for the A2 part of an Advanced GCE in Economics and Business Studies, which could lead onto higher education in areas of Economics, Business Studies, Accounting, Marketing or more general higher education courses. With further training, you could go into a job related to economics, business, marketing, finance and accounting, human resources and public relations. You could also go straight into a job as the AS GCE is a recognised qualification that could help you do a trainee management course within a company to gain the skills, understanding and experience that they require so you can progress to working at management level.
