Understanding economic mechanisms is vital for the success of business and the design of public policy and this major offers a thorough and comprehensive education in economic theory and empirical methods.
The Economics major from NHH Norwegian School of Economics studies what motivates and drives decisions for individuals, companies, competitors and authorities, and what determines prices, returns and economic allocations.
Students graduating from the Economics major work in both the private and public sector, in consultancy and analysis, banks, insurance, telecom, energy, or the oil sector. Public employers of students of the economics profile include Norges Bank, ministries and regulators, as well as international organisations (World Bank, IMF, OECD).
