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.
Extremely limited and often unpleasant study spots
Gym membership extremely expensive
Associations are not welcoming. Only one team per sport is by far not enough for the demand
Study material is often chaotic. No proper exercises and answers available for 80% of courses. Exams usually multiple choice testing your ability to memorise the precise wording.
Lectures are not online and some courses even enforce a 75% attendance.
In short, pictures may look nice (which is the sda campus we dont have access too), but it is not. Don’t go
The Economics and Finance program is well-rounded and full of diverse opportunities for its students. You are allowed to build your path in education early on and become responsible for your ideas and projects. I felt this is the best way for young students who want to start their career in finance straight out of university. Most of my classmates went to work in the market or in private funds and companies as managers and advisors. Anyone working within the sphere would tell you that Bocconi is a really good sign in the CV of professionals.View more
Bocconi University represents without any doubt the best university for what regards economic and financial studies. Starting from the facility itself, Bocconi’s lectures mostly take place in very modern buildings, with large classrooms that have all the technologies needed. The university also has many study and leisure areas, including a sports center (from the end of 2020). Professors are in general very good, but of course, there are some exceptions, anyway, they are very open to questions also outside from the face-to-face class. However, what really places Bocconi a step ahead competitors is its excellent career service and all the opportunities it gives you. Bocconi hosts during the year many conferences and career fairs, where employer came and talk about the firms they represent and eventual job/internship opportunities. In Bocconi, there are also many students associations, dealing with every field of economic and social. These are particularly valid to put in practice what you learn during classes and measure yourself with a real working environment.
Summing up, the opportunities Bocconi University gives cannot be compared with any other Italian university. Moreover, in the last years, Bocconi went up in the EU ranking, reaching leading positions for the finance BSc.
