The program offers a variety of economics courses that allow students to apply economic reasoning to analyse individual markets, macroeconomies and international economies; to make decisions and formulate strategies for business and government. It also prepares students for developing careers in the field of data analytics by providing them with skills associated with quantitative and statistical analysis, big data analytics, programming, data gathering and machine learning. By taking various applied electives, in addition to the core foundation courses, students will be trained to analyse business and social issues using relevant data and appropriate statistical methods. It allows them to customise their learning experiences to fit their preferences and career aspirations.

Graduates can develop a wide range of career options in business and government sectors. On top of the likely employment for BBA graduates in management, marketing, accounting and banking, many advanced career opportunities in financial and commercial sectors, such as research analysts, business consultants, asset management, credit analyst, risk management, treasury, and compliance, require specifically a degree in economics or other relevant disciplines in finance, law and science. These jobs usually require both technical and broad-based knowledge that the Applied Economics degree offers. Our training also paves way to graduate studies, which are commonly required for further career advancement.
