Economics is the study of the behavior of economic units, institutions, and systems and the choices that they make with respect to the allocation of scarce resources between production and consumption. It is concerned with a wide range of problems that directly affect society: the causes of unemployment and inflation, productivity and economic growth, foreign debt and trade links, and the role of government in market economies.
The program leading to a Bachelor's degree in Economics combines training in technical economics with opportunities for a broad and balanced undergraduate education. The program aims to give the students a solid grounding in modern economic theory and accompanying skills necessary for independent and critical thinking which will allow them to acquire an understanding of the Turkish and the world economy. The aim is achieved through a flexible curriculum which is structured to provide the basic social science and quantitative toolbox necessary for all economists in the first two years, followed by a student-tailored curriculum in the last two years during which the students choose a track of study they prefer to complete under economics. These tracks cover all general economics fields including Academics Economics Track which aims to prepare students for a highly quantitative graduate study, Macroeconomics Track which emphasizes topics about the workings of the macroeconomy such as monetary and international economics, Microeconomics Track which focuses on the decision making of individuals and firms in-depth, Managerial Economics Track which capturing the synergy issues between management and economics, and finally a General Economics Track which allows the students to explore cross tracks during their studies. All of these general tracks are supported by a range of free electives allowing students to become well-rounded social scientists and furthermore university graduates.
