Why study economics?

Economics graduates are intellectually powerful. The intellectual development and capabilities of economics graduates are valued by employers—they're able to think logically and abstractly, communicate effectively, and understand the operation of markets and the logic of optimal decision making.

In Canada, economics graduates usually find work as financial consultants, sales representatives, insurance brokers, financial managers, banking, credit, and investment managers, economists, researchers, consultants, financial analysts, and securities agents.
