Well, let’s see. We’re only just peeping our heads out of the hole that was the global financial crisis. Our European counterparts are perhaps a few shovelfuls behind us with their own eurozone crisis. And then we have the US government, which shut down because they squabbled over raising the ceiling debt while teetering on the brink of a debt crisis. Again.
Knowing this makes it hard to believe the world doesn’t spin on an axis of GDPs, unemployment rates and international currencies.
In our modern world, economics is king. Making economists, by proxy, royalty.
Studying economics in this climate is a smart decision. You know you’ll always be needed. Economics and economic experts are essential to forming smart government policy and making sound business decisions.
Qualifications in economics will make you indispensable and highly attractive to any number of employers as almost every individual, business or industry is affected by market forces and economic factors.
By studying one of our online economics courses you will become qualified to provide advice and forecasting on a range of economic issues, including imports and exports, wages, prices, employment and unemployment, tax, interest rates and exchange rates. You’ll also broaden your knowledge base and be guided through topics such as micro- and macroeconomics, business statistics, mathematical methods and econometrics.
Such courses will prepare you for the real world, where your employment prospects will be as infinite as the US’s government debt ceiling. So if you’re keen to understand the driving forces that make the modern world spin ’round, consider studying economics.
