Why study Economics?

5 reasons to study Economics

  1. Economics is closely linked to everyday life: it is a topical and ever-changing issue.
    We all talk and hear about wages, unemployment, inequality, profits, taxation, marketing, inflation, poverty, finance, and the economic crisis on a daily basis. A study course in economics provides the necessary tools to assess the interrelationships that characterize the complex economic and social context in which we live, debunking simplifications, clichés, and false myths
  2. The tools and methodologies of the economic way of thinking help to make informed and conscious decisions by identifying appropriate responses to economic, social, business, health and political issues.  Studying economics in fact means understanding decision-making processes in different contexts by assessing how people, companies, institutions, markets, and governments act in responding to threats and opportunities.  The methodologies of economic analysis and the increasing availability of data allow impact assessments to be carried out in terms of efficiency, effectiveness, equity, and sustainability
  3. As a student of economics, you will receive a comprehensive and multi-disciplinary education: in addition to a solid educational foundation (economics, business management, mathematics, statistics, law, history), the program also addresses current and "hot" topics such as the digital economy, big data analysis, energy transition, and sustainability. It also enables students to develop the language and IT skills that are essential for entering the job market
  4. The study of economics helps develop the critical thinking, problem-solving and analytical skills needed to analyze data to support decision-making. These skills are valued and important in all careers in the public and private sectors
  5. The Economics degree programme provides a qualification in a very practical and work-oriented discipline. Our graduates easily find employment within a few months of graduation and in a wide variety of occupations. These include various professional roles:
    • in every functional area of a private company (administration, finance, accounting and budgeting, marketing and sales, organisation, procurement, corporate communication, strategic planning)
    • in production, commercial and financial intermediation units, in economic and supervisory institutions of the national and international financial sector
    • in public administration and international economic analysis bodies
    • in various functions of companies operating in the transport and logistics and tourism sectors
