Victor Digues LacerdaBachelor student
"The way we tackle and understand economic issues is constantly changing. The university sits at the top of this revolution, enabling students with the tools necessary to drive this change and enabling them with a better way of understanding society in the 21st century."
Camilla ChristensenBachelor student
"The program gives an insight into how the world works, through the international aspects of our courses and the many international students. My favorite fields are development economics (why are countries poor and what can we do about this?) and behavioral economics (how can we explain and influence decision-making?)."
"The design of the Economics program enabled me to discover the specific field that I really want to engage in later in my master study and career life."
