Q: Why did you choose to study economics?
A: I chose to study economics because it’s a discipline at the intersection of social sciences and mathematics. While our goal is to understand human behaviour and decision-making, we also dedicate an extensive amount of effort in representing such choices using quantitative models. Economics is also a diverse field of study with many applications in the real world. As such, economists have constant exposure to new ideas and opportunities to work in a broad range of industries.
