What is economics?
Life is about choices. However, individuals, firms and governments cannot have everything they want. Constrained by both time and resources, they must choose from a range of possible options. Does an individual want more leisure time or a higher income? Does a government want to spend more money on hospitals or more on defence? Does a firm cut prices or advertise more to increase sales? Economics studies the way in which these choices are made, and can inform policy in areas as diverse as education, the environment, commerce, transport, globalisation and health.
At The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus we offer the
following undergraduate degree programme within economics.
