The Economics & Finance stream on the BBS (Hons) programme provides students with the opportunity to specialise in Economics and Finance for the final two years or their degree, taking modules such as Financial Economics, Economic Policy Issues, and Investments. The stream provides students with skills that are hugely in demand in the market place and provides a great platform for postgraduate studies, with many past graduates undertaking the E&F stream of the MBS degree in WIT and several have continued their studies and obtained a PhD qualification.  The stream applies economics and finance concepts to key contemporary issues such as Brexit, Crypto currencies, and economic crises and students are given the opportunity of testing theories on real-world data.

More Information

When you apply to the CAO you basically choose either Business common entry (BUS code on the CAO) or Business common entry with a language (BWL code on the CAO). However, the most important thing to remember is that it does not matter which combination you choose through the CAO - once you start in WIT in September, you can change both your specialisation and your language options. In fact, you only have to finalise your specialisation option at the end of Year 2. This will give you extra time to figure out which area you are really interested and choose the specialism that is right for you.
