Economics is divided into two main branches:
Microeconomics studies the decisions of individual elements such as households, firms, buyers and sellers in the economy,
Macroeconomics studies issues such as unemployment and inflation, affecting the entire economy.
Students with Economics background stand themselves in good stead as possible career opportunities include business analysts, economists in various companies and government agencies, as well as policy makers for national and international issues, for example, Central Provident Fund (CPF) Life, manpower policies, et cetera
