Economists are excited by changing environments and unique challenges. When you study economics, you’re examining decision-making processes at the personal and political level and contributing to a way of thinking that will influence countless social issues, including: poverty, climate change, health care, international development, globalization, immigration, financial institutions, and government regulations. Economics will prepare you for a career of investigating and analyzing economic events, forecasting trends, and creating efficient policies while innovating current systems. We take a comprehensive approach to the study of economics. At UNB, students build strong fundamentals by gaining knowledge about modern economic issues and problems facing our current system.
