The bachelor's degree focuses on the study of societies and how they make decisions on available resources when presented with different alternatives, in order to reach objectives proposed regarding economic growth, inflation, unemployment, distribution of funds, revenue and expenditure, poverty, etc., and in the evaluation of results of the different policies proposed.
