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
