Hello,

Economics is a sub-discipline of the social sciences. Economics studies the different correlations existing between individuals and the society. It also studies the aspects regarding how goods and services are produced, distributed and consumed.

As per jobs are concerned, there is a wide scope.

The employment options open to those who specialize in economics are manifold. To begin with, government enterprises, public undertakings, banks, finance and investment firms, business journals and newspapers and the private sector throw up many avenues of employment in various departments.Frequent vacancies are published in newspapers like Employment newspaper, times accent etc you can keep a check.

The Indian Economics Services are also an excellent option open to those who want to join government service. Officers are recruited through examinations conducted by the Union Public Service Commission. To be eligible for this examination, one needs to be a graduate and in the 21-28 age group.

Dear Aspirant,

Thanks for approaching us at CareerGuide. I appreciate your inclination to study more.

After BA Economics, the best progression further would be MA Economics. It is unlikely that you will get good jobs based on your economics graduation degree. An MA Economics from a premier Institute like Delhi School of Economics, Gokhale Institute of Politics and Economics, Madras School of Economics, Symbiosis School of Economics, would be best one for you since after this, you can get good jobs in banks, financial institutions and market research companies.

As far as the one year or six months courses which would compliment Economics graduation are of Statistics, Econometrics, Finance, Actuarial Science.

An MBA in Finance from a premier Institute is also another best option.


Best wishes,
