I think a degree or background in Finance is important. Work experience in the Finance Industry was useful for me to make the move between a banking role and moving to a Group Treasury role in a company, and most of my colleagues have also worked in Investment Banking prior to this.

Naturalist
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Summary... header image

Also available in degree stream MH101 ECN Economics: specialise in Economics from second year, and MH101 PPE - Philosophy, Poliitics and Economics: students study all three subjects for three years.

Economics involves the examination of questions such as how we get incomes and spend them, how prices are determined, how inflation arises, what causes employment to expand or contract, why countries are more or less prosperous. No previous knowledge of economics is assumed.

This degree combines the foundations of Economics, such as Microeconomics, Macroeconomics and quantitative and statistical methods. You don’t have to have any previous knowledge of economics to study with us, only an interest in how the economy works and a desire to know more.
