Economics is one of the evergreen subjects because of its high utility and huge demand in the job markets. It is also an important discipline both for a career as well as a job point of view. Job opportunities are increased because of globalization and after the merging of the world economy. A well-trained economist has a high demand not only in India but also across the world. With a background in economics, it seems anything is possible. Other common economics careers and roles include auditor, stockbroker, insurer, business manager, retail merchandiser, pricing analyst, statistician, financial consultant and salesperson. But what can you do with an economics degree if none of the above appeals to you? Well, you may want to also consider these broader options: business intelligence, international development, human resource management, IT, journalism, law, management, market research, politics, public relations, social research and taxation. Or, you could even become an entrepreneur and start your own business.
