Economics - Primary Track Why are prices going up? Why are some products harder to get? These everyday questions, and others like them, are what economists try to answer. Economics is the study of how individuals, businesses, governments, and societies make decisions concerning the use and distribution of resources, such as time, money, and skills. It is the central science underlying business and public policies. A B.S. in Economics emphasizes a broad understanding of how consumers' and producers' behavior is influenced by certain events—such as changes in interest rates, changes in prices, and new government regulations. The Department of Economics offers two program tracks. The primary track allows students to choose their own outside minor to complement their study of economics and advance their career goals. Political science, finance, business administration, and foreign languages are some of the common choices for an outside minor. The quantitative track is a specialized program designed to prepare students for graduate education in economics. An education in economics prepares students for employment in a wide variety of jobs—including banking, real estate, insurance, financial management, sales, and public administration—and serves as an excellent foundation from which to pursue law school or other advanced degree work.

Bachelors in Business and Economics in North America 2017. Bachelor of Economics Economics is the study of how societies deal with the economic problem - providing for the economic well being of their citizens. Each society has to decide what goods and services to produce (and how many of each), which methods to use to produce those goods and services, and to whom to distribute these goods and services once they are produced. The approach of economics is to emphasize the role played by rational, self-interested economic agents. Studying economics provides a solid preparation for a wide variety of careers in the private and public sectors. Recent economics graduates have secured employment in a variety of government agencies as Research Officers/Analysts, in banking and finance as Investment Services Officers or Financial Analysts, as well as becoming successful law students. The Department offers a major and Honours major in Economics, a major in Economics and Society, a joint Economics and Business Administration major, a joint Economics and History major, joint Economics and Geography major and Honours major, a BSc major and BSc Honours major in Economics and a joint BSc in Statistics and Economics. The Department also offers a Certificate and minor in Economics. Why major in economics? Economics asks interesting and important questions Economics studies how consumers, workers and businesses behave, with the goal of providing helpful analysis and advice to private firms, governments and international institutions like the IMF and WTO. Economists believe that individuals and business organizations usually act with an eye to their own self-interest. They use this assumption to predict future market trends, to analyze the relative merits of different possible market structures (e.g. small vs. big business, capitalism vs. socialism), and to advise governments and international bodies about the likely effects of their economic policies (e.g. taxes, unemployment insurance, free trade) upon individuals, industries and whole economies. There are lots of employment possibilities for trained economists Many jobs are available for economists in the public sector, especially in the areas of statistical analysis (Statistics Canada is always looking for economists), monetary policy (the Bank of Canada), public finance (advising municipal, provincial and federal governments on taxing and spending), economic development (advising towns and provinces on the best ways to attract business investment or plan for future expansion), and policy analysis (the very best students have a good shot at prestigious and rewarding jobs with institutions like the IMF, the World Bank and the United Nations). In the private sector, there are plenty more possibilities. Students with a training in economics can also find work as foreign-exchange traders, stockbrokers, financial consultants, auditors, tax analysts, investment advisors, research officers, bank managers, market analysts, labour-relations managers, journalists, and so on. And economics degrees open the door to professional programs in Business Administration, Law, Public Administration and Accountancy. High ranking: One of Canada’s top 10 comprehensive universities.
