Understand, analyze, and forecast global economic changes and their implications for the performance of organizations.
What is Economics?
Learn how people, firms and governments make certain decisions (microeconomics) and how these decisions affect the economy as a whole (macroeconomics).
Use economic models to study and forecast changes in the local and global economic landscape.
In contrast with business studies, which concerns itself with how to run a company, Economics is focused on the environment in which consumers, companies and countries relate to each other.
Business related courses only play a small role in the program in order to allow for a specialized focus on economics, which is expressed in courses such as Industrial Economics, International Trade, Public Sector Economics, and Development Economics.
