Economics is the study of scarcity, and concerns the allocation of society’s scarce resources amongst their many competing uses; it looks at the way the world works.
Economics is a highly versatile subject that could provide many different career pathways. Many students decide to study the subject at university, and from there go on to work as economists in various fields such as with the Bank of England, the CBI, accountancy firms, in economic ‘think-tanks’, for example, the Institute of Fiscal Studies, in charitable organisations, in multinational corporations, or in government departments.
Economics A Level students are also very well-prepared for the workplace, with many taking up apprenticeship schemes, such as in accountancy or project management in firms such as BAE Systems and Rolls Royce.
