Are you passionate about the business and finance sector? Do you follow the national and international news? Then, an Economics degree is the answer. It has always been one of the most sought-after degrees amongst youth.
Economics degrees are designed to tackle all the issues that have an impact on financial situations, ranging from production to how resources are used. Candidates are trained to understand how the economy suffers fluctuations based on the market’s needs and wants followed by the market’s supply and demand.
By far one of the most crucial elements is that economics is divided into microeconomics and macroeconomic. Microeconomics deals with the economic behaviour at an individual level (companies, buyers, sellers and others), whilst macroeconomics illustrates the bigger picture, on a national or global scale (unemployment, economic growth, inflation and so on).
Having an economics degree increases anyone’s chances to find a job, regardless of the field. This is mainly due to the fact that graduates hold many transferable abilities, such as analytical and problem-solving skills, that are suitable for any career.
A study made by the London School of Economics and Political Science showed that graduates from an economics course have a starting salary of £33,000 per year. Having a job in the field right after graduation is a major positive aspect and comes with a lot of opportunities for career advancement.
Economics degrees are usually a three years commitment and sometimes are offered as part of a joint degree. This means that Economics can be studied along with another subject such as engineering, management, law, computer science and others.
This degree can be found either as a Bachelor of Science (BSc) or Bachelor of Arts (BA). The BSc focuses more on economical theory and statistical techniques, while BA is combined with social sciences and qualitative modules.
Grenoble Ecole de Management is a great business school. The teachers are very qualitative. I studied in the MIB program and it gave me a great range of knowledge about business (supply chain management, international law, finance and accounting, marketing, quantitative methods for research, languages, geopolitics…). Besides the very interesting classes, GEM is specialized in geopolitics and organizes each year the festival of geopolitics. I also liked being involved in some student associations such as the Musical of the school and GEM Entreprendre.View more
GEM is a very good business school, with courses in lots of different fields that allow you to explore a lot of things before specializing. It is a school well recognized by companies so to find internships we have access to a lot of resources, a very good network to develop your professional career.
Regarding student life and associations, the year at GEM is very dynamic and gives everyone the opportunity to express their opinion, to create content in the association they like. I spent very good years at GEM.View more
After my French baccalaureate, I didn’t know what to study, so I found the bachelor in international business as a good way to keep learning the general basics and to better find the field where I would like to work in (ex: finance, marketing).
I like this program even though some of the subjects taught were not as good as I expected.
Then I learnt that integrating a master in a business school, actually there are so many ways to get admitted. It does not matter what you studied before as long as you did 3 years of studying after high school.
What I want to say is that in a certain way I kind of regret having done this Bachelor program since the subjects taught do not worth the price we pay a year.
Since to do a master, later on, it doesn’t matter what your studies background is, I could have done 3 years of studying in a field that doesn’t have anything to see with business such history, or architecture. It would have been also less costly.
I could have still later integrated a master in business to complete my studies
Well, I still keep good memories and experience of this Bachelor because I had the chance to be in an international program and meet people from around the world.
To resume, I think the university licence diploma is worth as good as the Gem bachelor diploma but less costly…View more
Good business school that supports students in their internship research, the gap year with events such as meetings with alumni, a forum where recruiters come to meet students.
We can choose the courses that interest us the most from the second year and the catalog of specializations is quite wide which allows everyone to find something to suit them.
As for the associations there is something for everyone and student life is very rich: Rhone Alpes derby, Gala, Ski week, Christmas festivities, geopolitics festival …
GEM is a school where there is always something interesting going on and where everyone can get involved in what interests them the most.
On the other hand, as in most business schools, administration can be complicated to reach and does not give satisfactory answers to the particular problems of students.View more
after 2 years of “Classes préparatoires ” as we call it in France, during this period I worked so hard to arrive to GEM, it was my dream school and it was worth the effort because the school is known for innovation, geopolitics and the school clubs. The courses during the first year are general (finance, marketing, geopolitics, project management…), so you can discover different subjects before choosing your programme. I personally chose subjects related to finance (international finance and financial market).
To get your degree you must have an international experience and the school offers different exchange programs and the possibility to do a gap year. I think that the school offers so many opportunities and Grenoble is famous for the ski, the proximity to Switzerland and Italy. I am from Morocco and now I have the chance to study in Study in France, the home of good food, wine, fashion, but also some of the best universities and colleges in Europe.
