The Bachelor of Science in Economics aims to develop the analytical capabilities, technical skills, interpersonal skills and firm grasp of the theory of management you will need in the world of business, research and public administration. The first two years form a common study programme with the Bachelor of Science in Management.
The course stands apart from similar programmes offered elsewhere in Switzerland by its strongly quantitative orientation: statistics, mathematics, IT, decision-making analysis, finance and economics account for around 70% of the teaching. In the third year you choose advanced courses in economics, finance and free options.
Most holders of a Bachelor of Science in Economics continue their studies with a Master’s degree. Economics studies offer many career prospects in large companies, public or private administrations, centres of statistics and development, economic study services, the media, etc.
