Undergraduate Programmes


A first degree in Economics not only prepares you for a career as an economist in government or central bank, financial services, research or consulting. As Economics at LSE addresses the world's toughest problems, our graduates also find satisfaction in a wide variety of satisfying and important roles, ranging from international development to management. A significant number go on to graduate work.
