Economics can be applied to any field, at any time. If you’ve got a thirst for numbers, statistics, business, and finance, then make the world of economics your playground.

A degree in Economics would teach you to understand an economic system, understand data to analyze problem areas and devise solutions for the same. You will know the workings of demand and supply like the back of your hand. And you will also understand what makes the Indian economy tick along with the international economy.
