Economics

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 the outcomes of situations and how one action can influence another, you're already thinking like an economist.

An economics degree will give you the understanding of the national economy and teach you how to think critically about how materials, money and resources are bought, traded and sold.

The ability to understand and analyze the modern economy is a valuable skill – one that will allow you to make a big impact on many industries.

More UNIBusiness graduates have earned NASBITE's Certified Global Business Professional credential than any other university in the world.
