Applied Economics Concentration

Applied Economics Concentration offers students both broad-based knowledge and technical skills, which are the combination that employers demand nowadays.  Besides traditional economics core courses that allow students to analyse individual markets and macroeconomics, we equip students with updated economic knowledge, skills and information technology in data analysis that are practical in the industry.

Graduates can develop a wide range of career options in business and government sectors, such as research analysts in business strategy development, public policy analysts for consulting firms, government and public utilities, management in some advanced areas in financial sectors, including credit analyst, risk management and treasury, as well as teachers of economics or liberal studies.
