The Bachelor of Economics is a four-year bachelor’s degree in the social sciences encompassing both qualitative and quantitative courses.
Typical mandatory courses for the degree include microeconomics, macroeconomics, econometrics, economic statistics, history of economic thought, and political economy.
Some schools offer students the opportunity to specialize in a particular area of economics, such as agricultural economics, econometrics, environmental and resource economics, financial economics, and political economy.
Many programs incorporate training and practical experience, in the form of research projects, presentations, lab work, and OPT and CPT opportunities, with tuition starting at $24,000 USD per academic year, although partial merit scholarships are available for high performing international students based on IELTS (6.5+) and TOEFL (90+) exam scores as well as CGPA and SAT (1150+) exam scores.
