The Economic Analysis (ECO) major from NHH Norwegian School of Economics sheds light on a wide range of economic issues, covering business analysis, finance and economics. Compared to other majors that offer courses in similar subjects, ECO courses have a stronger emphasis on understanding the validity and limitations of methods and models. The increased emphasis on understanding the methods and models, rather than just being able to apply them, helps students' competence stay relevant in a future work place with increasing degrees of automation.
The three main areas in ECO — financial economics, business analysis and economics — offer opportunities for specialisation. At the same time, emphasis is placed on the close links that exist between the subjects. This gives you the possibility to specialise within one area, but also to choose valuable combinations across areas.
The major is well suited for jobs that require high analytical competence. Such jobs are found in, among others, the banking, finance, and insurance industries, major companies, innovation- and knowledge-oriented businesses, public administration, and international organizations.
The major also provides an ideal basis for pursuing a PhD in one of its subject areas.
