Find out more information about Economics

Do you know why God created economists? To make weather forecasters look good. Originally, Economics meant merely “the science of wealth” and “the management of a household”; but its focus today has expanded more towards a social science that analyses the economic prosperity of a society.

A Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in Economics teaches you about interest rates, exchange rates, economic indicators, and equity markets, allowing you to see how they all influence different industries around the world. Students develop a broad understanding of public policies and their socioeconomic impact upon legislation, taxes, services, and regulations.

Economics has two sub-disciplines:

• Microeconomics – analyses economic agents
• Macroeconomics – explores the entire economy of a society

Students who complete degrees in Economics follow career opportunities as:

• Investment analysts
• Auditors
• Economic consultants
• Financial managers
