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.
You will enrol in an intensive learning programme in technical matters such as mathematics, statistics and econometry, and the knowledge you obtain will allow you to make more appropriate decisions in the fields of both public organisations and private businesses.
During your last academic year, you will be able to choose a specific itinerary (specialisation) which will help you specialise in the area in which you are most interested. You will also be able to take classes in English, participate in exchange programmes with universities abroad and work placements in companies.
