As we are more connected globally to one another, the study of economics becomes increasingly important as it builds awareness of how things are exchanged, how they flourish and how they survive within multiple markets.
IB Economics at St. Stephen's Rome awakens a student's sense of the broader modern world and the forces that shape current events. Over two years, students explore the fundamental principles of the discipline and a wide range of economic interpretations - orthodox and alternative - that help them answer questions about the world around them.
In our courses students develop an understanding that human attitudes and beliefs are widely diverse and that the study of society requires an appreciation of such diversity.
Economics at St. Stephen’s:
- encourage the systematic and critical study of: human experience and behavior; physical, political, economic and social environments; the history and development of social and cultural institutions
- develop students' capacity to identify, to analyze critically and to evaluate theories, concepts and arguments regarding the nature and activities of the individual and society
- enable students to collect, describe, analyze and interpret complex data and source material and to test hypotheses
- illustrate that the knowledge and methodologies of the subjects across the social sciences are contestable and that their study requires the acceptance of uncertainty.
