Our curriculum in economics emphasizes the development of foundational knowledge in micro and macroeconomics, as well as quantitative analysis, and statistics. Specialized courses focus on the application of this knowledge to a range of topics while developing and sharpening skills in the process of conducting research and oral presentation.
The study of economics not only provides you with a strong foundation for understanding the world through microeconomics, macroeconomics, and data analysis, but also supports its students with skills valued by employers.
