How does your education pathway look like?

What skills do you need for a course in Economics?

Eye for detail

You’re the kind of person who remembers the colour of the shirt someone wore 3 weeks ago, on a certain day. Why? No apparent reason, you’re just good with remembering details, some small, some big, but all, important.

Good Communicator

While everyone else whips out their phones to launch calculator, to divide the bill among yourselves you calculate everything in your head and spilt it evenly before anyone else can finishes keying in the numbers. The best part? You’re never wrong. Does this sound like you (Okay, making a mistake or two is fine!) Basically, numbers are second nature to you, and they pose no problems.


It’s dinner time, and your friend calls you up to head out for dinner. While screening suggestions from your group, you hear about this new place which is famous for intestines, from one of them. While the rest of your group react with a mixture of disgust and horror, a fire slowly starts to flicker in your heart. You must dine at this new place. Not because you like the food (You’ll probably hate it), but simply because you’re curious. Thankfully, you’re not a cat.
