Bachelor's Degree in Economics (English)
In accordance with an ever more internationalised and global context, our faculty includes lecturers and professors with international experience and training and is committed to providing a competitive Economics degree in English which will allow you to develop the professional skills needed in organisations working in global markets.
The degree in Economics in English focuses on the study of how societies make decisions on how to allocate available resources, by choosing from different alternatives, to achieve proposed objectives in aspects such as economic growth, inflation, unemployment, income distribution, discrimination, public revenue and spending, pollution, poverty, etc. It also focuses on evaluating the results of the different policies proposed.
As a student in Economics, you will acquire skills in the two areas into which this discipline is commonly divided: microeconomics, which examines the behaviour and decisions of individuals, households and companies when exchanging goods, as well as the interaction between governmental policies and the market; and macroeconomics, which offers a more global vision of the totality of economic activities.
The knowledge obtained allows you later to make the most appropriate decisions when working with both public organisations and private enterprises.
Three to four-month work placements can be taken in the fourth year.
The language the degree is offered in will be stated in the European Diploma Supplement.
The ideal student for this degree is someone with a keen sensitivity towards social, economic and political issues. A basic knowledge of mathematics and computer tools. Your knowledge of English must also be equivalent to the level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
Career options are similar to those of the degree in Economics, with the additional advantage of being able to opt for careers in which international components are essential.
Graduates in Economics are able to opt for a variety of professional profiles. Traditionally, graduates in this field have gone on to occupy posts in public administrations (local, regional, national and in the European Union), as well as other public entities and institutions (hospitals, public enterprises, etc.).
You will also have the sufficient skills needed in both local and international regulating agencies and in writing up and researching economic issues (financial entities, research tasks in universities, etc.). Given the versatility provided by their training, they can also opt to work in the private sector as analysts: financial, monetary, market, public policy, sectorial, etc. Other possible areas, in either the public or the private sector are: business start-ups, purchasing, production, logistics, drawing up reports, quality, administration, accounting, auditing, finance, human resources, sales and marketing, general company management, etc.
