Career prospects

Economics touches everything. It affects every business, every government and every individual. To this end, a great many businesses and institutions are seeking intelligent individuals who understand how the economy works and who can help them find solutions to economic questions. While the Bachelor's in Economics and Business Economics will effectively prepare you for a job, most students continue their studies with a Master's programme. The reason is that further specialisation increases your chances of success in the labour market.
