BSc Economics

The main objective of the program is to create qualified professional economists who will be able to come into the public and private sectors nationally or internationally.

These professionals will have a strong base in economics, statistics, mathematics and other social disciplines with a special emphasis on equipping students with the intellectual ability to apply the most significant concepts and results of economic theory to concrete situations. With a sufficient and varied base, appropriate concepts and analytical tools, graduates from this program will be able to respond to the ever-changing and increas­ingly demanding requirements of business practices and labor markets, both nationally and internationally. The program is aimed at talented local and foreign students who want, above all, to develop and apply critical and evaluative thinking in the context of economics, management sciences and analysis relating to a range of policy and decision making scopes.


Further emphasis will be placed on training functional graduates of economics who can face the economic realities and challenges of our time; who can compete favourably with their counterparts from any part of the world; and to develop in our graduates self-reliance and the desire to contribute effectively to the development of the national economy.
