What can you do with an Economics degree?

Almost anything! A career in the field of economics demands a unique way of looking at the world. If you’re constantly thinking about how people respond to incentives and how one action can influence another, you’re already thinking like an economist.

 

Economics is about people.

Why are some countries rich and some countries poor? Why have income and wealth become more unequally distributed over the past few decades? How will an aging population affect life in the coming decades? How will the workforce change with advances in robotics, automation, and artificial intelligence?

Economics often involves topics like wealth, finance, recessions and banking, leading to the misconception that economics is all about money and the stock market. Actually, it’s a much broader discipline that helps us understand historical trends, interpret today’s headlines and make predictions for the coming years.

 

Economics is the perfect start to your advanced degree.

An economics degree will help you kick-start a career that requires an advanced degree.
