The BSc in Economics prepares students for employment in a variety of occupations in business or government, and for continued study in graduate schools in economics, business, and other fields. This programme analyses how scarce resources are allocated, emphasizing the importance of making choices between competing alternatives. The programme provides tools to make choices in such areas as consumer and firm behaviour, employment, price stability, trade, international finance, economic growth, public finance & public policy.
Students will acquire a solid background in economics that prepares them to continue their studies in economics or to specialize in disciplines such as accounting, finance, banking, marketing, risk management and more. With such knowledge the economics graduates can pursue a career in civil service, banking, education, research or the opportunity to claim attractive jobs worldwide.
