The aim of the Degree in Economics is to produce professionals who can accomplish tasks related to management, guidance and assessment of economic affairs, both in private companies and in public institutions or any other institutions of economic or social relevance.
Graduates in Economics acquire the theoretical and practical knowledge needed to analyse and interpret how the economy works, in order to identify and to anticipate relevant economic problems, and to defend or criticize the different alternatives that can solve them. As a result, students learn to understand the relationships between the economy and society and to propose solutions to economic problems from a global perspective.
In the fourth academic year, students must choose one of the four academic pathways. These pathways correspond with the main professional profiles of the degree. Each academic pathway consists of 48 optional credits (eight 6-credit subjects). Two subjects from one academic pathway can be replaced by the subject named External internships (12 credits). You can also study a part of this degree in English.
