Why study the Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) in Economics?

This Bachelor of Commerce Honours in Economics degree offered at IIE MSA offers well-blended modules that take into consideration the developmental needs of African economies, as well as the needs of firms, enterprises and the private sector.
