Economics

Master programs provides the same title for the degree - the Master. Postgraduate studies such as Masters of Science are shortened MSc. The Master of Science in Management program or the Master of Science of Management education are postgraduate programs in common management. This means that students receive an academic education with depth of reflection and abstraction. Masters usually can be classified as Master of Science (MSc) or the popular Master of Arts (MA). The Master of Science (MSc) usually is given for successfully achieving postgraduate programs with a science or technical point of convergence.

Economics is a branch of social science that deals with the distribution, consumption, and production of goods and services. Economics is a derivative of two Greek words which mean “house” and “law,” and thus the subject deals with customs of good management.
