This Bachelor in Economics enables students to analyse economic reality using a rigorous, quantitative and critical approach. They can apply this approach to different contexts, including macroeconomic and financial analysis, business management or public policy analysis.

Economics has evolved into an empirical science that uses theoretical frameworks to analyse and understand data. Students will develop the necessary professional skills and knowledge to identify and anticipate opportunities, allocate resources, organise information, recruit and motivate people, make decisions, reach goals and assess results. Additionally, CUNEF Universidad offers minors in International Finance & Banking or Data Science to allow students to gain further specialisation.

Students also acquire the necessary analytical skills and tools to enable them to understand and make  financial decisions in all business areas.

Career Outcomes

CUNEF Universidad Bachelor in Economics prepares students to meet the challenges of the “new digital economy” and figure out what field of Economics they want to focus on professionally: the legal and international aspects, or rather the technological aspects, where managing huge volumes of data has become crucial.

In terms of career prospects, there is a wide range of options for recent graduates: taxation, analysis and planning services, public administration, international organisations, foreign trade, business management, economic consulting, teaching and research. There is a broad spectrum of career opportunities, including the private sector (companies, banks, consulting firms), the public sector (government agencies), and international institutions (OECD, IMF, World Bank, European Commission, etc.).

Economics graduates find their first job within 3.6 months after graduation (well below the general average), and studies show that, on a national level, 44% of them actually get a job before graduation.
