Consequently, many business leaders emphasise the need for business managers to understand the economy and its impact on business. The Economics major is accordingly valuable for business students. The subjects in this major provide students with the professional skills, knowledge and understanding that enhance their capabilities in each of the professional areas within business.

Students intending to apply for the honours program in economics should take two of the following optional subjects: 23592 Game Theory, 23565 Mathematics for Economics and Business, 23572 Applied Microeconometrics.
