The Degree in Economics provides students with solid foundations in economics, quantitative methods, data analysis and management. Students are also motivated to do applied work, by using real data and by being in contact with economic institutions and co​rporations. It makes use of teaching/learning methodologies that stimulate students’ independent and cooperative work, ensuring the acquisition of the skills needed to be successful in the labour market and boost their future careers.
