Economics Plus: looking beyond money, markets and regulations and becoming an economist that can tackle complex economic issues in today’s fast-changing, globalising world.
We challenge you to look at Economics differently and to discover that it is much more than money, markets and regulations. Economists also examine consumers’, businesses’ and governmental financial behaviour and decision-making. Decisions as to where and why to spend money are fundamental in economics. And because reasoning is not always rational, it’s important to have a clear understanding of thought processes. Having an eye for all these facets will give you a strong basis to tackle the complex economic issues in today’s fast-changing globalising world. Simply put, our Master’s programme in Economics will put you ahead of the game.
