Economics

Prospective students


A Nobel prize-winner in Economics once described Economics as “the queen of all the social sciences.”  Economics is the root science in the Faculty of Economic and Business Management.  This means that it forms the backbone of any commercial degree and is one of the basic disciplines in practically all the B.Com degrees.

The Department of Economics offers courses in two fields of interest, namely Economics and Financial Economics.  Both can be taken as main subjects in many B.Com degrees.

Make a good start to your career by becoming a student in our dynamic field of study.  There is a wide choice of fulfilling career opportunities for economists in both the private and public sectors.  These include the Reserve Bank, commercial banks, investment banks and fund managers. Do not wait, come and discuss your future career with us.
