The Economics Program trains professionals with skills to work in private or public sectors. In private sector, our economists will be able to dynamically interpret the effects of environmental factors, in order to optimize organizations’ economic resources. This will enable them to efficiently face short- and medium-term problems from actual and financial perspectives. In public sector, they will be able to provide viable solutions to important issues for the development of the country.

The total number of credits necessary to complete the Program is 209.

The total number of credits is distributed in ten levels, each of which correspond to a four-month (sixteen-week) regular academic term. These terms begin in April and August of each year.

Additionally, some courses are taught in non-regular eight intensive week-long academic terms that begin in mid-January of each year. These courses are offered to students who want to catch up because they have failed them or who want to advance them.

Students who pass all the courses programmed in each level will complete the Economics Program in ten academic terms (five years).
