The Department of Economics provides a four-year single-subject Bachelor's Degree Program, firmly grounded in economic theory (micro and macro), quantitative methods (maths, statistics, and econometrics) and applied-economics subjects.
Its curriculum aims at acquiring knowledge and skills that enable graduates:
- to assess decisions by households, businesses, economic policy makers and other groups, and to understand the international economic environment and the forces that shape its behaviour
- to use the basic analytical tools of economic science (in its theoretical and applied dimension) in order to study current economic issues and evaluate alternative policies
- to pursue successful careers in the private and/or public sector as well as in international organizations to undertake high-quality, postgraduate studies.
Parallel but equally important objectives of the curriculum are the strengthening of the critical-thinking capacity, the will for social contribution and the accumulation of social capital.
