About this discipline

Do you want to know why there is no such thing as free? Your ticket for the tram, your school trip to a trade fair, your appointment at the dentist and your subscription to Basic Fit: it all has a price. A bank asks you for money when you want to borrow money and gives you a little money in return when you save up with them. In the news you sometimes hear the word ‘bribe’. And what about the Messis or Ronaldos who earn astronomical amounts of money? Per minute! Money is everywhere!

You find out how money makes the world go round. You learn where your 20-euro note comes from and where it goes to when you use it to pay. But it doesn’t stop there. The stock market, exchange rates, shares, investments or bitcoins will no longer hold any secrets. The role of the European Central Bank, causes and consequences of international trade wars? You will explain it all in detail.

Do you want to know how the world really works? Enrol in Economic Sciences!

STUDENT PROFILE

In geography class, you learned that the world revolves around the sun. But the world itself, as you know, revolves mainly around money! And that is exactly what you want to know all about. You like to immerse yourself in the analysis of economic phenomena in order to test the theoretical analyses against reality. For this you need a healthy interest in mathematics and you will also work with figures in the subject bookkeeping.

Economic Sciences is a doorstroomrichting. After the third degree, you continue your studies at college or university (e.g. a Bachelor’s degree in Economic Sciences or Commercial Sciences).
