Post Graduate Diploma (PGD)

PGD in APPLIED ECONOMICS

CPTEC Business School &
Davids Graduate School of Finance

in conjunction with

CPTEC University

The CPTEC PG Diploma in Applied Economics encourages the application of economic analysis to specific problems in both the public and private sectors. It particularly fosters quantitative studies, the results of which are of use in the practical field, and thus helps to bring economic theory nearer to reality. This is generally considered to be the study of economic principles when they are applied to specific scenarios or situations. In fact, applied economics covers fewer core theoretical modules and more applied modules compared to economics. This CPTEC Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Economics provides the student with a broader perspective on the application of economic theory to real world issues but less knowledge of core economic theory, already covered at the undergraduate level; i.e. Applied Economics is for people seeking a broad understanding of economics.
