Introduced in 2013, the Bachelor in Economics (BECO) is one of the most competitive undergraduate programs offered by Kathmandu University, School of Arts. Over the four years, students are offered a wide range of courses in economics exploring topics in money, banking and financial economics to issues in development, labor, environmental and energy economics while also equipping them with topics in political economy, public economics and policy. While the degree is rich in quantitative courses in mathematics and econometrics, it also offers courses in economic history and history of economic thought as well as courses that are designed to help students hone their narrative skills. The program engages students with game theoretic tools to help them analyze strategic situations, an approach that finds applications in most real world contexts. Economic reasoning, quantitative and data analysis skills combined with an exposure to programming languages such as STATA and R, lends our BECO graduates comparative advantage in today's job markets – both private and public - as well as for higher studies in top universities around the world.
