Bsc. Economics

A BSc (Bachelor of Science) is an undergraduate degree that prepares students for a career in their field of study. While the degree is often related to courses in the realm of science, students in non-science fields can also earn a BSc.

Those who study economics first and foremost learn the differences between microeconomics and macroeconomics. Microeconomics involves the behavior of individual markets, such as households and firms, and their interactions. Macroeconomics, on the other hand, involves looking at the entire economy as a whole.
