What Is an Economics Degree?

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).

Benefits of an Economics Degree

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 Degree Structure

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.

    NOVA SBE Review

    I studied 5 years at NOVA and could not describe my experience better in one word: gratitude. All the environment, staff, faculty and students contribute to excellence and the move from campus to Carcavelos has allowed even more doors to be opened. It is undoubtedly a pioneer space and will see its results in the medium / long term.

    Professional and international business school

    Nova is a great business school! It is very focused on providing students all the tools and knowledge for a successful career.

    The professors are very good. They are professional, they are experts in their field and they are able to engage students. The workload is a bit high and at times we are overwhelmed with work, but with this we learn how to handle stress and work under pressure.

    From day one we have a lot of opportunities to study or work abroad, connect with top companies, attend networking events, school fairs, recruiting events, and participate in clubs. There is also a lot of help from the career services as they are only focused in helping students achieve their goals and work in the companies they desire.

    The central office is a bit slow responding to problems but they truly care about the students and resolving their issues.

    The campus is incredible and has everything a business school should have and more! It’s is close to the beach but also not too far from the center of Lisbon.

    I recommend the school for those who want a challenge and a bright future.

    The campus is very big and well situated (near the beach); some people even say it seems like an airport.
    The professors are good, however, they don’t really read your thesis (which gave me a lot of work!).

    Program

    As a student looking to study abroad, Nova SBE should be in the priority list. Not only does the university fulfill all the academic requirements a student is looking for, it is set in a city and a country that will put the years studying there as the most memorable.

    Aiming to become one of the best in Europe

    Very high-level education and solid academic structure, both at the Bachelors and Masters levels.
    Good value for money given the quality of the university and the tuition, which is a fraction of what is paid in other European countries.
    Good career prospects in Portugal but still some work to be done in terms of international recognition.

    Tough but Fair

    In the BSc, you will suffer from subpar grades, and during the MSc you will be overwhelmed by the workload, but in the end it will give a very good preparation for the future. One of the best Finance schools in Europe, especially with the new campus in Carcavelos!

    The number of activities and the connection with companies

    The university is new but well known and there are so many opportunities to join university clubs depending on your tastes and passions. I would recommend Nova SBE for their well-established network with the labor market and many important large firms.

    Betting strongly on the internationalization of the School and therefore a lot of diversity of students and professors. All of them very qualified in their fields and to teach. Kind of far from Lisbon but near the beach which is very positive and nice place.

    The environment

    I believe Nova is a great school, which enables students to grow and prepares them for the professional market. The new campus is amazing, it gives such a huge energy to the school. Nova tries to put its students under stressful situations to get them used to most jobs environment, and focus also on the practical approach instead of just teaching the theoretical concepts.
