Career Prospects

Every day, people around the globe make choices from a limited pool of options and resources.  These choices are not left to individuals only as governments and organizations are also faced daily with making choices to satisfy needs and demands. 

The interesting study of why these choices are made, the trade-offs made and their implications are in nutshell, Economics.

Economics is the science of human choices; a study of how limited and scarce resources are allocated among competing uses to satisfy our wants.  It’s about the world around us, how we behave, how businesses and government behave and how world markets work all in the bid to satisfy and promote development.
