The Economics major provides a rigorous academic programme if you want to pursue a career within business, including economics consulting and data analysis, as well as macro-analyst positions and central banking.

You will learn a framework for analysis that can be applied to a great variety of areas, ranging from international trade, inflation and business cycles, to firm competition and strategic behaviour.
You will learn about the optimal choices and strategic decisions of individuals and firms, and how they respond to incentives like bonuses, taxes, and competition.
