Major in Economics
Customise your Master of Science in Business – QTEM degree by choosing a major in Economics.
Why choose a major in Economics?
Economics is the study of how societies, governments, businesses, households, and individuals allocate their scarce resources. You will learn a framework for analysis that can be applied to a great variety of areas, ranging from international trade to unemployment and inflation, from investing retirement funds to controlling pollution.
What will you learn?
The Economics major covers both micro and macroeconomic theory extensively. The emphasis on analytical and quantitative skills enables you to become a critical consumer of statistically based arguments.
Among the courses, you will find:
- Advanced Macroeconomics: What determines economic growth? Learn consumption and investment theories, and the different mechanisms explaining unemployment.
- Microeconomics: Learn how microeconomic theory can facilitate private and public decision-making.
- Industrial Economics: Most markets are controlled by a small number of firms that dominate the market. This is called an oligopoly. What does this mean for product development, pricing, and innovation?
The QTEM Master programme combines semesters at BI and semesters abroad, together with an internship. By the time you graduate, you will have spent two semesters at BI, two semesters at two of our academic partners - plus the equivalent of eight weeks in an internship.
