Economics is the social science that seeks to understand how the world works, analyzing the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services.
Our programs offer the opportunity to gain a deep understanding of the economy and examine the social, cross-cultural and ethical dimensions of economic decision-making.
Our students learn from some of the world’s leading experts in a wide variety of fields, including industrial organization, labour, economic history, macro-economics, political economy, international trade and finance development, as well as resource, health and transitional economics.
