Program at Unisinos

The program prepares students to understand changes in the global economy and to strategically guide decisions to be made by companies and governments. Throughout the undergraduate program, theory is applied in the analysis of domestic and international economic situations, and supplemented by the possibility of technical visits. Lectures by professionals from the area and interdisciplinary activities with other programs from the Business School are also common practices in the program. These initiatives enhance the repertoire and curriculum of students so that even in the midst of their studies they can embrace opportunities in the job market.

You and the Market

Professionals in economics analyze accounts today to project future returns. Economists know how to transform numbers into results. They use rationality to define criteria for reasoning, and creativity to manage income. They are able to formulate plans and goals to circumvent financial problems in institutions of all sizes. Therefore, they can fit into labor and financial markets, as well as the business world. The main opportunities lie in private companies, commercial banks, teaching and research institutions and public organizations.
