Economics is a social science that addresses a vast array of topics. Recent advances in economic theory and empirical and quantitative methods have provided tools to analyze a broad range of issues relating to economic outcomes, social processes, and political developments such as inequality, financial instability, and sustainability of economic growth. There is a high demand for specialists who have strong analytical skills in economics combined with computation and data processing skills. The challenges include, among others, the design of markets and large-scale matching systems, or the design and empirical assessment of interventions and policies.
The mission of the Bachelor’s Programme in Economics is to respond to those demands and to offer high standard education preparing students for challenging careers in economics. The programme draws on the core competences of Aalto University, particularly the ones at the Business School and the School of Sciences. It is ideal for students interested in continuing economics education in MSc and PhD level in Finland and abroad.
