What I love about my course is its scope, broadness and the fact that there is probably no area which is not intertwined with it. Patryk Szostak

I enjoy learning about how the economy works. How money isn't just printed out at any time, but is controlled by the government. Economics allows me to understand the fundamental problems that all societies face. Moreover, it focuses on the interaction of the market and people, how economic agents behave or interact, and how the economy works. Fon Yih Young
