INTRODUCTION

The Economics programmes provide the student with an excellent overview of economic theory, development theory and international finance. The course empowers students with graduate knowledge, skills, research methodologies and applied competence to pursue rewarding careers in the fields of commerce, industry, business and the public sector.

Economists are well known for advising the president and congress on economic issues, formulating policies at the Federal Reserve Bank, and analyzing economic conditions for investment banks, brokerage houses, real estate companies, and other private sector businesses. They also contribute to the development of many other public policies including health care, welfare, and school reform and efforts to reduce inequality, pollution and crime.

The study of economics can also provide valuable knowledge for making decisions in everyday life. It offers a tool with which to approach questions about the desirability of a particular financial investment opportunity, the benefits and costs of alternative careers, and the likely impacts of public policies including universal health care and a higher minimum wage, and so on.
