Are you SFU Economics?
Thinking about Economics?
Economics is about understanding how decisions get made and to find answers to complex real-world questions, such as: Why are some countries poorer than others? Why is income inequality rising in Canada and around the world?
Studying economics provides a framework for thinking clearly about these issues. You will learn how to think logically and you can apply this knowledge to every aspect of your life. You will develop quantitative skills that will help you understand data by applying theory and modeling techniques.
Our graduates go on to a wide range of exciting careers such as business and financial analysts, government and policy advisors, investment and retail bankers, management consultants, pension advisors, entrepreneurs, journalists, and many more.
