Minor in Economics
Why Minor in Economics?
If you wish to get an excellent foundation in economic theories and the dynamics of the world market, and to be able to mix this knowledge with your primary field, then you should consider the minor in economics.
The minor is academically attractive to students in many majors such as engineering, computer science, mathematics, political science, history and pharmacy. It increases students’ chances of employment in many areas where their primary fields of study interact with economics.
The curriculum also provides ideal preparation for graduate work in Economics for those coming from quantitative scientific fields (e.g. physics, math, computer science, engineering) or for graduate work in multidisciplinary fields related to undergraduate studies in different fields such as Financial Engineering, Construction and Engineering Management and Economics, Pharmaco-economics, Health Economics and Political Economy.
