majoring in economics

Why major in Economics? There are a thousand good things that can be said about economics, but first, a gist of what economics is all about. Just a rough idea, it is basically mathematics, except that it a portion of science! Most students probably do not know this, but majoring in economics opens up avenues to study either further business related specialities or science (especially physics) related specialties because of the mathematically-rich nature of the course.

In an age where students would do anything to dodge anything mathematically related, there has been an increased demand for degree holders in economics. Also, economics has the best entry-level salaries for graduates, and the salaries easily double after working experience. There is an abundance of internship openings for students learning this course as the job opportunities for graduates are overwhelmingly huge, stretching from private to public sectors. Students however need a high level of dedication to this course as it is very demanding and would require maximum effort and concentration.
