Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) in Economics

Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) in Economics for 2018

Why study Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) in Economics?

This Honours degree offers well-blended modules that take into consideration the developmental needs of African economies, as well as the needs of firms, enterprises and the private sector. For instance health and development are key areas for the continent as a whole, thus the Health and Development Economics modules offer graduates the abilities to understand and find solutions for some of these problems.

For the growing retail and financial sectors in Africa, the Forecasting Methods for Business and the Empirical Finance modules to be offered in the programme will advance the graduates’ abilities in decision making, development and growth in those specific fields.

The programme recognises the importance of research skills to economists and introduces the student to the major issues and practices in undertaking a research project. Students are taught to deal with issues both systematically and creatively; design and critically appraise analytical writing; make sound judgements using data and information at their disposal; communicate their conclusions clearly to specialist and non-specialist audiences; and demonstrate self-direction and originality in tackling and solving problems.

Career Opportunities

The careers open to economists are challenging and dynamic, more so in the present environment of globalization. This programme will prepare graduates to take jobs and internships in the Banking and Financial Markets, the Public Sector, and International Economic Affairs, such as the World Trade Organization, United Nations, the World Bank and the Regional Development Banks.

This programme is offered by Monash South Africa in cooperation with Monash University. Successful completion of this programme leads to a Monash South Africa qualification.
