In Economics we develop learners’ understanding of the economic environment in which we live by enabling them to understand economic concepts in real-life contexts.

The courses highlight how important economic concepts, government policies and global trade affect our daily lives, and deepen understanding of how markets work.  Learners develop an in-depth understanding of economic problems, as well as the ability to explain those problems and consider possible solutions to them.
