Career Prospects after Economics (Hons) from University of London

The advent of globalisation has brought about effective growth in economies. Naturally, this opens up a gamut of job opportunities for ‘Economists’ who are expected to not only use their theoretical understanding and knowledge of things, but also their practical and analytical potential to the maximum. It is perhaps for this reason that some of the most sought after white collar jobs are those of Economists. This coupled with fancy monetary returns, has them embedded in all walks of professional life, be it government jobs, businesses, finance, education, banking, health etc., making it a career oriented social science.

Every year, cohorts of bright minds, fresh out of school and ready to be carved into business and economic analysis experts, by studying the coveted economics syllabus, apply for 3 year Economics Honours or BSc (Hons) Economics, aspiring for jobs like Policy Research & Analysis, Big Data Analytics, Management Consultancy, Investment Banking amongst others that studying the economics syllabus offers. Below are the career trajectories of two successful Economists after studying the BSc (Hons) Economics (or Economics (Hons) degree in India) from the University of London programmes in India, with academic direction from The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). Their trails would give you a better idea and direction as to how the course equips you to become a leading Economist of today at Fortune 500 companies.

Kanika Khurana:

Starting her journey from a Delhi based private school, she enrolled herself at Indian School of Business & Finance (ISBF) in 2008 to pursue BSc (Hons) Economics, the international equivalent of the sort after ‘Economics (Hons)’. Owing to the application based learning, along with studying the cutting edge LSE curriculum, she secured an International Placement (1 Year) at Morgan Stanley, London, post which she was placed at the Mumbai branch as the Equity Operations Analyst at Morgan Stanley, Mumbai. Throughout her journey, her knowledge in the subject of Economics helped her to even establish her own entrepreneurial start up in fashion under the name of KlosetEdit, before pursuing her MBA in Marketing & Strategy at one of the most esteemed colleges of the country- Indian School of Business (ISB), Hyderabad.

Shalini Mittal:

Shalini enrolled herself at the Featured Teaching Institute of The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), Indian School of Business & Finance (ISBF), to pursue BSc (Hons) Economics, or what Indians more commonly refer to as Economics (Hons). With hard work and a committed faculty to support her, she was transferred in the 2nd year at The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). She then pursued her MSc Economics at LSE, and immediately started working as an Economist at Cambridge Econometrics and The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), London. After working there for a couple of years, she took up the profile of ‘Consultant’ at National Institute of Finance & Public Policy, New Delhi. Ultimately, she joined The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), New Delhi as ‘External Country Analyst’. Much of her success can be attributed to her extensive knowledge in the subject of Economics.
