A background in Economics equips you with the skills to analyze public policies, assess their impact on businesses and society, and propose evidence-based solutions to economic challenges. Graduates with a Business Administration in Economics degree have options for pursuing careers in government agencies, non-profit organizations, or international institutions, where you can apply your economic expertise to address socio-economic issues, formulate economic policies, and promote economic development.

The rigorous analytical training and critical thinking skills you’ll develop during undergraduate studies will prepare you for advanced academic research and professional opportunities in academia, research institutions, or think tanks.
