Economics

An MSc, or Master of Science, is an academic distinction bestowed upon those who effectively complete a predetermined set of coursework in what is often a science-based discipline. The MSc often enhances career opportunities as well as earning potential.

Those who study economics first and foremost learn the differences between microeconomics and macroeconomics. Microeconomics involves the behavior of individual markets, such as households and firms, and their interactions. Macroeconomics, on the other hand, involves looking at the entire economy as a whole.
