Charles Vogt

The support, care, and encouragement from my lecturers gave me the confidence I needed to succeed in finding employment. Not only do lecturers care about how you perform inside the classroom, but they also care about how you’ll succeed later down the line. The career fairs and employment support on offer at BBS certainly helped me to connect with people in the same area of study and branch out my network in order to secure a job after graduation. In fact, if I hadn’t attended a Bangor University careers fair, I wouldn’t have met the employer I’m still with today!

William Overton-Smith

William tells us about his experience studying Economics here at Bangor Business School. 

Why Study Economics?

Economics provides us with different ways of thinking about the world and how it functions. It helps us to understand how individuals, businesses and governments do behave; and gives us insights into how they should behave. At one extreme, economics informs the decisions that governments make about some of the most pressing issues of our day, including climate change and inequality. It informs how businesses make decisions about everything from pricing and advertising to investments in product development and corporate strategy. At the other extreme, it can help us as individuals to make better decisions about our own lives; including how hard we should work and how much we should save for our retirements.
