What is TSM Economics?
The attraction of the TSM Economics programme is that it introduces students to two disciplines during their undergraduate studies with students having the choice of nine subjects which complement the study of Economics. Economics and Mathematics, for example, will appeal to students with a high mathematical ability who are interested in a career in finance or actuarial studies. Economics and Geography is an excellent choice for those interested in urban and regional planning.
In the TSM programme, Economics can be studied with any of the following subjects:

Is it for me?
Economics will appeal to students with a wide range of interests. If you are interested in current economic affairs or in understanding how public policies could lower unemployment or assist the developing world, then you will find studying economics both stimulating and rewarding. Economics is also a strong platform for careers in business and finance. Students who enjoy abstract thinking, and are evaluating courses such as engineering or physics, should also consider economics as a degree option.
Economics students develop exceptional logical reasoning and analytical skills which are highly sought after by employers in a range of fields including business, finance, journalism, law, politics, the public service and academia.
