Economics provides an overall picture of the economy and the environment in which business enterprises operate. Familiarity with the principles of economic activity and the mastery of economist's skills provide a durable foundation for professional competence in a rapidly changing world.

In the area of the international economics and finance, the acquired skills of an economist are important in globalising and integrating business activity. Economics in TSE is oriented towards these specialised fields, but it also embraces the versatile whole of economic discipline in general.

Economics as a major subject for graduates opens up excellent career opportunities, because they have an apt combination of broadly applicable economic know-how and special expertise.
