Bachelors in Political Economics. 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.

Economics and Business Economics Amin Noori Economics has always been a passion of mine, and after my second gap year from high school, I was ready for a new and exciting journey. IBEB has allowed me to really look at everyday occurrences in a more rational sense. Frequent reminders of how essential macro and micro-economics are, can be found in all parts of day-to-day life. This is what really interests me and what attracted me to this subject. The past year, I wanted to get more engaged with the international community at the Erasmus University. Therefore, after applying, I attained the position of Vice-President at ESN. It has been a very fulfilling year, organizing events and creating a welcoming environment for international students during their stay in the Netherlands. My time so far at Erasmus School of Economics has been amazing. I’ve made lifelong friends and tried things I never thought I would. The city of Rotterdam has truly become my home away from home. Its modern architecture and great international vibe truly allow for it to live up to its nickname, “Manhattan on the Maas’’ Lastly, I want to point out that being part of Erasmus School of Economics opens doors for many opportunities. It is up to you to go and grab them! Hrisyana Doytchinova When deciding on where to continue my studies, I was advised by both my Economics teacher as well as a friend to choose for this programme. I wanted to do something a bit broader as the field of Economics is quite broad in itself. But I was also looking for a bachelor programme where the courses complete each other. IBEB was exactly that! It incorporates Economics and Business Economics courses very well and they also complete each in a harmonic manner. Moreover, the study is divided into blocks, so you can focus really well on your subjects each block. This doesn’t mean that it’s easy though; IBEB requires you to plan your studies well, because it’s quite intensive. But I think that this skill comes in handy when continuing your studies and in your future career. Besides the study itself, I also really like Rotterdam; it’s multicultural, has beautiful spots like the Kralingse Plas and offers many career opportunities. And when you decide to study here,take my advice: besides obviously focussing on your studies you should definitely buy a bike! I can’t live without it anymore and it gets me everywhere from the Hague to Delft and back to Rotterdam! [-]

As individuals, communities, companies and governments, we face choices every day, weighing up the costs and benefits of our decisions. With the ongoing momentum of globalisation, development, economic/financial/cultural integration and increasing pressure for ecological sustainability, economics remains the key element. Economics determines much of today's social and political landscape, and students trained in this field are exceptionally well-positioned to play a leading part in the future direction of business, government and society. Philosophy Philosophy examines fundamental problems such as the scope and limits of human knowledge, the ultimate constituents of reality, the sources of value and obligation and the nature of correct reasoning. All this began with attempts to answer two deceptively simple questions: What can we know? And how should we live? Philosophy aims not to teach you what to think, but how to think. UQ not only offers students the only accredited philosophy major in Queensland but also provides students with opportunities to study with internationally recognised philosophers in a research-intensive environment, across the breadth of the discipline. Emphasizing the key role that critical thinking plays in a healthy society, the major equips students to participate more fully in leadership roles in the broader community. Politics Politics includes studies of political structures, processes and policies in Australia as well as other societies, the contemporary ideas, ideologies and theories that determine the framework for political decision-making, and the organisational and diplomatic approaches to cooperation and conflict resolution in the international system.
