Programme Overview

UNIRAZAK’s Bachelor of Economics (Hons) is the only undergraduate economics degree programme taught at a private institution in Malaysia by a school of government. Students are trained to be good economic thinkers and practitioners who are able to adapt to governance and policy-making challenges.

The Bachelor of Economics (Hons) (Financial Governance) is an innovative programme that combines economics, financial studies and governance. It also emphasises state-of-the-art courses such as financial technology, data science and digital currency. Students will acquire in-depth practical skills in finance and risk management, and be knowledgeable on how the financial governance systems and regulations work. All these translates to having in-demand skills upon graduation.

Those who aspire to be part of a country’s complex nation building efforts will find the Bachelor of Economics (Hons) (National Economic Management) an ideal specialisation. It builds on the fundamental knowledge of economics with a keen focus in the making and managing of national economic policies that lead to economic development and creation of social welfare. Thus, students are not only trained to be practising economists but also to have the practical skills in policy-making, which include process and planning of public policies and public-private sector relation.

These programmes give aspiring economists the opportunity to leave positive footprints in society and open many career pathways.
