Students study economic theory, micro and macro economics, comparative economic systems, international economics, and quantitative analytical methods. Graduates will utilize knowledge of production, conservation, and allocation of resources in conditions of scarcity to make informed decisions.
Data-driven decision making is critical for the economic success of the modern business. Through Concordia's courses, students learn how to use the tools of economic data analytics as a decision science.
