DescriptionEconomics is the study of how people and organizations choose to allocate limited resources across competing areas. You will learn about management, international markets, and labour markets, as well as the fundamentals of economic theory. You will examine questions such as why some countries are rich and others poor, and why rent is so much higher in Toronto than in Sudbury, and whether free trade will make us richer.
Our program can lead you to a career in business as a commodities broker, financial analyst, investment banker, market research analyst, management consultant, strategic planner, foreign trade analyst, or tax auditor.
Economics is also good preparation for law, politics, diplomacy, government, and administration. You will also be prepared to pursue graduate studies in business and economics.
