Economics is the study of how people as individuals and groups satisfy their needs by allocating and managing scarce resources. There are many career opportunities either within Economics, in the private sector or with government agencies, both within New Zealand and overseas. It also enables you to enter the workforce as an employee or become a self-employed entrepreneur. An Economics Degree combines nicely with many other subjects in other degrees.
