Where numbers matter

Our academics are committed to understanding the ways in which economics and finance impact on businesses, individuals and the global community. Far from being abstract mathematical concerns, issues in accounting, finance and economics drive developments in international politics and influence change in the business landscape. Our staff conduct research into issues as wide-ranging as Brexit, globalisation, consumer debt and regulation in the banking sector.

We bring this fascinating research into the classroom to show you how the everyday application of financial theory makes a huge impact on the world around you.

Our prime location - in Docklands and Stratford - also means you’ll be learning in one of the world’s greatest financial hubs. You will have the brilliant opportunity to gain valuable, real-life experience in the City of London and in the financial, accountancy and business hub that is Canary Wharf. 

UEL’s superb facilities, outstanding teaching staff and world-leading research, combined with your ambition to succeed, make a winning combination.
