It is possible to work as an investment advisor, market research specialist, business analyst, or bank manager.

A country’s prosperity depends on its competitiveness which is based on its productivity in producing goods and services. Agents such as consumers, firms, counties and public sector agencies play an important part in creating value and supporting their economic development as well as that of their country, region or county.
