INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS

Why study ECONOMICS:
Because it is a science for anyone who wants to UNDERSTAND the economy.
Are you wondering why certain economic phenomena have an impact on the other ones, sometimes seemingly completely independent of each other? Or why, something that we expect in the economy does not happen? Why is the crisis always coming after the boom? Or why do people buy things they don’t need? Why prices of petrol increase?

Or maybe you have other questions about the economy that you haven’t found the answer yet? We will help you find it…
