Benefits
of Economics Education

Economics education in the new
millennium has a two-fold effect to new economists:
first, it provides the students with the necessary scientific knowledge
to obtain employment in a profession that is characterized by high demand; and
second, the training on the recent developments in the areas of mathematical
and statistical economics makes today’s economists, more than ever in the
profession’s history, an integral part of the global scientific community.
The scientific background and tools that are used to improve the technology
and welfare of humanity are common, but applied to different areas.

In
this global scientific village, the Department of Economics of the University
of Calgary provides an excellent opportunity for its students to get a
thorough training in economics. Friendly and productive faculty in both
teaching and research, constantly upgraded curriculum and the beautiful City
of Calgary, as Canada’s second most-important financial and business centre
constitute an interesting setting for economics education.
