Licenciatura emEconomics

ISEG´s Bachelor’s in Economics combines three essential elements for the education of an economist, in a unique way:

  • A solid background in economic theory.
  • A high degree of interdisciplinary learning in fields that are complementary to Economics (Management, Mathematics, Law, Sociology, and History);
  • Mastering the analytical tools of economic reality.

The combination of these three elements, together with the fact that students are able to choose elective course units to strengthen their areas of personal interest, means that the ISEG Bachelor’s in Economics has a high standard of quality, which is widely recognized by the market, where our graduates easily find employment in both the private and public sectors.
