Cursos / 1º Ciclo / Undergraduate Degree in ECONOMICS

Versao Portuguesa


Presentation

The experiences and changes witnessed in recent years in the areas of economics and finance, as well as the overall social and political events of the world, dictate that traditional teaching at the university level be updated to stay abreast of the new realities. The directors of the Universidade Lusíada de Lisboa have therefore introduced alterations in the curricular designs of a number of degree programs. The program in Economics has been singled out, in particular, for change – driven by the fact that many sectors of the world economy, notably macroeconomics, have been profoundly affected by alterations in currency exchange and the establishment of ever greater trade zones. At the same time, the effects of governmental policies and the increasing influence of market forces demand that agents pay more and more attention to the performance of firms, the needs of international cooperation, and the fine-tuning of governmental intervention in economic, financial and social affairs. These are the principal factors that have motivated the Universidade Lusíada de Lisboa to redefine the program of studies leading to the undergraduate degree in Economics. The present program, while structured as outlined below, is necessarily complemented by additional projects, such as graduate-level studies aimed at deepening the knowledge of students and professors, alike.
