3-Year
B.A. (HONS.) in ECONOMICS
with Data Science

Program Overview

The B.A. (Hons.) Economics with Data Science Program is designed to produce graduates trained in the application of knowledge in economics to real-life economic, financial, ethical and analytical problems encountered in the economy. The course will enable the students to effectively apply their knowledge and skills to situations of economic, institutional and policy making both in governance and industry. This unique course offers the opportunity of studying the traditional curriculum in economics alongside advanced data analytics and data science methods.

The course has a rigorous focus on quantitative techniques and research methods which will orient the students in dealing with economic problems with a practical and analytical approach. The diversity and the spread of the course ensure that the students receive sufficient experience of the current issues and crisis of the world especially that of the emerging economies. Data analytics has a wide range of applications in practice (from social science, to natural sciences; from the evaluation of economic policies, to prediction and classification of economic phenomena). You will learn how to use data analytic methods to combine data (from survey, census, social networks, text, sounds, images, memories, or experiences) and study human behaviour and social environments. Specifically, we will help you to translate economic theories into empirical questions that can be answered with data, and that can inform debates about the economy, society, and the impact of economic policies.

Some of the major learning outcomes of this program are
  • Learn economics theories and how to contrast these theories in real life, using data analytic and data science techniques.
  • Use data and data analytic methods to evaluate policies, understand trends of macroeconomic aggregates, predict and classify economic phenomena, and map and analyse complex network relationships between firms, institutions, policy makers and other agents in society.
  • Enjoy using a variety of statistical software used in government, industry, and academia, including R, SPSS and other popular packages.
