    Course Summary

    Economics is the science which follows the flow of resources, money and valuables through the complex systems of modern life. It relies on research, observation, careful data collection and in-depth analysis to model markets and to suggest effective business strategies. However, economics is a social science. That means that all of that understanding can be used to improve people’s lives in the real world.

     The University of Toronto’s BSc in Economics will show you how to suggest sound economic policies, simulate ideal resource allocation solutions and devise unique economic strategy as well as how best to use limited resources to serve individuals, organisations and whole societies.

    There will also be opportunities to participate in a range of co-op and experiential learning programs. This could see you doing paid work as you learn more about your specialty. You’ll also develop important transferrable skills, improving your written and oral communication abilities to make you more employable in nearly any field.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
