Economics is at the core of Global Sustainable Development (GSD). You will be critically analysing economic models and theories of sustainable development through quantitative and qualitative approaches.

Your modules with Economics will provide you with an essential background in micro and macro economics, as well as methodologies for statistical analysis. Meanwhile, your studies with Global Sustainable Development will empower you to consider the human and environmental costs and implications of development.

You will ask critical questions about the nature of economic growth, how its benefits are often unevenly distributed, and what measures can be successfully implemented to build a sustainable future for all.
