Short Courses in Economics

Economics is a science that was born in the Ancient Greece and developed into a complex study of financial entities. The objects of study are economic agents and their particular activity, as well as their evolution. Microeconomics, the field that studies the basic elements of the markets, including agents, while macroeconomics focuses on the entire economy and the factors that affect it. Microeconomics and macroeconomics are the two main sub-disciplines of economy.

Business schools and universities provide in depth degrees in economics at all degree levels. Students who enrol in a Master degree in economy have the chance to identify all factors that influence the financial world and to also specialize in one of the field that economics applies to, such as education, law, social institutions, science and others.

After they earn a Master’s degree in economics, graduates find employment as accountants, financial risk analysts, economists or financial specialists in all companies of the market, regardless of their activity field.
