Economics and Accounting - Queen’s University Belfast

Economics is concerned with how people make choices in conditions of resource scarcity and the results of these choices for society.

In understanding these problems, economists make use of a wide variety of analytical techniques borrowed from numerous other fields including history, philosophy, mathematics and statistics.
