¿Por qué estudiar Economía?
The study of Economics at secondary education level involves, looking at the differences between micro and macroeconomics. This therefore entails analysing individuals, firms, markets, market failure, government economic objectives, global economics and economic theory.
This provides an important background knowledge for any pupil who wants to pursue a university degree in economics and sets the student up for a future career in the subject. Undertaking a course in Economics helps people understand more about the world around them. It enables the student to understand people, businesses, markets, governments and global economic change.
At LMI college we follow the GCSE and A-level AQA syllabus.
The GCSE consists of two examinations, one at the end of the first year of study and the other at the end of the following year.
These examinations are set out as follows:
Paper 1: How markets work
Paper 2: How the economy works
Furthermore, the A-level consists of three differing exams, these are:
Paper 1: Markets and market failure
Paper 2: National and international economy
Paper 3: Economic principles and issues
The students are therefore provided with a well-rounded picture of how economics work in the real world and are able to apply their studies to a multitude of differing economic case studies.

• Business and finance consultancy
• Pricing analyst
